268 Tasting Notes
I am really loving this one. When I think of a sencha, this is what I want. It’s medium-strong flavor, great balance of savory, sweet, and astringency. Perfect iced and hot. Rebrews quite nicely. I could easily buy more. Very tasty, this is going to ruin other sencha experiences for me, since they all will have to live up to this. I am really loving this, and all I had was a tablespoon sample. This so far is my favorite tea from the sampler, but I have a few to go through. So fresh, it agrees with me.
I had to bump the rating on this up. I spent a lazy day just rebrewing this over and over. I gave up after 7 since it was bedtime. It was delish each time. I had time to enjoy the slight changes. Smooth, silky, and a light caramelized milk flavor.
It’s very pricey, but I think I could drink this all over again. One for enjoyment.
I love Grand Marnier…either with Duck a la Orange, in chocolate truffles, or in a stiff drink. This tea captures the flavor of it well. This is one of the best orange flavored teas I’ve ever had. It was a creamy like background to it that I love, but not to the point of being a orangesicle. Makes for a great iced tea. I like the black base in it, too. It has some orange zest in it and yellow petals from some flower.
I am very very picky about mango, which isn’t the tea’s fault. I thought I would give this tea a try. I think I dislike mango flavoring. The tea has a perfect balance of tea and flavoring. It is good iced. I just don’t like mango as the flavoring, I prefer mangoes only in Indian food where it’s mixed with something. Mmmm, mango pickle or mango lassi, that’s something I could eat right now.
