Recent Tasting Notes

What?! I’m the first reviewer?

This is from the lovely MissB who’s on walkabout in Europe.

It smells SO heady and fruity. Kinda like the quince and apple thing I made in the fall, actually. Quince is so delightfully perfumey, and even though this is definitely a sencha base, the perfume overshoots the mineral/seaweed flavours.

Sipping on this hot, it tastes like I remember quince smelling. Floral, apple, something unidentifiable that is quince. I’m quite liking this. Not necessarily enough to keep it all (ha!) but enough to slow down and really appreciate this cup.

Even cooling, as the green base becomes more apparent, I’m still liking this.

Thanks, MissB!
