This bloom was HUGE! One of the darkest liquids I have seen from a flowering tea. Smells a little like cinnamon – not hot ball cinnamon but an Indian Spice type cinnamon…and cereal and floral type scents.

Very Spring Flower Tasting and almost flour or oaty type undertones. The bloom was beautiful and the taste was a little different than I expected but ok.

Prior to steep…no smell. During/After Steep…smells like on-the-verge-of-burning-popcorn.

Green Murky Looking once infused.

It’s texture-E
Not sure about it.

It’s not bad but it’s very different…on the verge of odd, maybe.
I’ll give this another whirl at another time

Smells like Broccoli after steep is complete.
Light Green in Color with a little coudiness.
A soft yet sweet grass type taste.
Ok to fair rating.

Smells like broccoli and you gave it a 71? You must like broccoli! Bleh!

I DO like Broccoli :) But seriously…it doesn’t taste bad…so I went with a 71…that could and might change by a few tho…lol…

Heh, I’ve had one like that too. I wrote the review and thought it was odd. Then I had broccoli boiled with a little butter for dinner and it was exactly that same smell. Amazing. :)

LOL – Good too know I wasn’t the only one who thought that! LOL

Mine wasn’t a sencha, though. I can’t for the life of me remember which tea it was now.

Beautiful Bloom. Not much for scent. Taste is on the light side. Color, if steeped longer, is that of an oolong-type.

Preparation
Boiling 4 min, 30 sec

Went to the same restaurant. Had the same tea. Tastes the same. Good for finals week, though — warm and has some kind of taste to it.

One of the local mom’n’pop Chinese restaurants serves this tea, and it’s a general oolong that is good with food. I’s pretty light and kind of tasteless, but it’s good for a mellow hot drink during winter.
