277 Tasting Notes
I just grabbed the packet out of my tea collection and hadn’t read anything about it.
They are not kidding about melon taste to it. Strong.
The tea is medium-light in the darker tones of white tea, the melon flavor fills your mouth on sipping and stays in the finish.
I’m usually anti-melon very strongly… but this is a nice change in whites, something that surprised me. Seriously, I took a gulp and went WOAH MELON and went and got the packet to look it up.
I’d recommend it to at least try by folks. I’m torn on whether I’ll put it down as one to buy in the future as I can’t see me drinking it a lot… but it is really good for variety. We’ll see.
I’m having this again after not for a long time.
It’s still not a huge favorite, but it is definitely true to its description and quite pleasant. Good for an occasional cup/pot but I won’t be buying any more after this package is gone.
As I said before… zingy, raisin, and honey. If you are an oolong fan, I’d definitely point you in this direction!
Oh my gosh this is a weird Sencha! At least compared to the ones I’ve had so far.
I made it 2g to 2oz, 180 degrees, 10 sec
It is VERY strong. There is a bitter green taste to it, kind of like brussel sprouts or the peel of a zucchini. Usually I find bitter to be bad, most senchas I’ve have a bitterness that puts me off to some extent… This isn’t that type of bitter. It is in the roof of the mouth and back half of the tongue. I gives the sip a wow factor
It’s strong and very dark green in flavor, and it has a silky nature to it. A light amount of astringency. A refreshing factor.
This, after their Sakura Sencha, is my favorite Sencha I’ve had yet.
