Delicious! The aromas of clove and cinnamon come through so much stronger than any chai tea I’ve tried in the past. Similar to the Assam used in this tea on it’s own, I would prefer the citrus notes to come through a bit more, but it’s a very intoxicating tea. Good on it’s own, or with milk and sugar!

This tea is on the expensive side ($8/oz), so my expectations were high. I fell in love with the soft, even needles. It smelled beautiful while steeping. The liquor aroma was also beautiful – a sweet, but strong grassy smell. However, the liquour itself disappointed somewhat. It had hardly any taste at all. I have tried steeping for less time, and for more time, but can’t seem to get much flavour out of it. I would also have liked it to be a brighter, more typical Sencha colour. I will try a different brand of Sencha next time.
I love this tea – the taste of seaweed is amazing, it’s there, but it’s subtle and beautiful. This tea would be delicious with a light fish dish (obviously it would be perfect with sushi). It’s a very dark brown colour for green tea, but lovely and toasty tasting. Yum!!
Not a lot of astringency, which was nice as I am not a huge fan of Assam teas. Nice malty flavour and beautiful copper colour. I would have like to have tasted more citrus and spice coming through.
