drank Sencha of the Summer Sun by Yunomi
74 tasting notes

Thanks a lot to YUNOMI for the free sample! It came beautifully packaged with a pretty postcard from the company.

As for the tea, I really enjoyed it. The more I steep it, the more I like it, actually. 10g might not seem like a large sample, but at three steeps and counting I’m really getting the most out of this tea. To my knowledge, this is the first straight sencha I’ve tried, so although I can’t offer the most educated opinion, I really enjoyed the experience. The first steep was more astringent than I’m used to, but from then on it mellowed out immediately. I’d definitely recommend a short steep time, as it’s quite bold. Overall, this one is very enjoyable. The customer service provided by the company is excellent as well.

Flavors: Grass, Vegetal

Tea enthusiast still figuring out this Steepster thing. My collection is ever-growing.

I almost always like: Vanilla, chai, caramel, berries, lemon, hibiscus, jasmine, cinnamon, ginger, earl grey, peach, lavender.

I rarely like: Mint, chamomile, rice (not a genmaicha fan), licorice, nuts, milk, artificial sweeteners.

When it comes to straight teas, I’ve liked basically everything – black, green, white, rooibos, mate, guayusa, oolong, pu-erh and yellow teas are what I have explored so far.
