This stuff is kind of starting to grow on me. If I let it steep a bit longer you can taste a hint of something sweet but not enough that it lingers for long. Not as bad as it seems when I first got it.

On an off-note, my two boys are big enough to sit up in their Bumbo’s now which makes me excited. If you don’t know what a Bumbo is, then you need to look it up. Probably the single most awesome thing you can have as a parent. It’s just a chair, but you can move it anywhere for them to sit in or feed them in.

I’m still new to tea’s and find it hard to get leaf tea around here without ordering online, which I plan to do soon but for now I got this tea at the local Asian Grocer and its not too bad. I use 1 bag per small teacup and it doesn’t have a lot of flavor but you can tell its more than just hot water. It works for now.

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.

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.

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.
