I think I’m not really a fan of the sencha Frank usually uses. It gets astringent too easily and has that indescribable flavor that i just don’t like in some Chinese senchas. That thick mineral-y flavor. Bleh. To be fair, most flavored senchas I’ve tasted seem to have an even worse base tea. And their flavors don’t come close to being as good as those you can get from Frank. And this tea makes a lovely spring green brew. And after that freezing subway ride to work, any hot tea is welcome.

The flavoring here is quite tasty. I’m of the opinion that citrus and jasmine are lovely together. This is a light floral flavor with a hint of underlying bergamot. Subtle sweet flavoring. It was probably stronger before. I think this blend is a bit aged. :)

Second steep is mostly just green tea with just a hint of jasmine.

Nice tea for a warming up after a chilly morning commute. Thank you for sharing TeaEqualsBliss!

Bio

I came from a tea drinking family, but I never appreciated the different qualities and varieties of tea until older. All that time wasted! But I guess I needed to be mature enough to appreciate the tea experience. :)

My favorite teas are green oolongs and white tea. I also love greens, especially gyokuro. I have a huge appreciation for rooibos and honeybush as they are often that only thing I can drink in the evening. I am a relatively new convert to black teas. This is unfortunate for my wallet but extremely wonderful for my palate. :)

In any case, I have a love for both flavored and unflavored teas. They are different experiences for sure, but both enjoyable. I find that it often depends on my mood.

I am on a quest to find a tea that will win my husband over. I think I’m making some headway…
