drank Sencha by Teavana
3 tasting notes

Sencha is, hands down, my favorite kind of tea. I’ve tried a lot of them, in a lot of places, from some very reputable companies. And I keep coming back to this one. I might have some other senchas sitting on the shelf but still crave this particular balance of fresh, leafy overtones with a heavy, yet never bitter aftertaste. I only wish Teavana would list the variety(s) of sencha in this blend (I’m assuming it’s a blend since it’s not linked to a specific garden) so that I could really dissect what I’m drinking. But it’s still a great tea.

Bio

My earliest memories of tea involve a dark little shelf full of my father’s collection…teal blue, orange, and yellow metal tins that no one makes anymore. I was probably about six at the time. I was too young to be trusted to hold them, but he’d let me smell the aged leaves, almost always black or oolong, and drop a few pinches into the tea ball. Looking back, that tea ball probably ruined the real flavor of those teas, but it was good enough to lead me to my own (not so) little treasure trove of precious leaves, mostly Japanese with a healthy selection of black.
