Recent Tasting Notes
How i got it: Got it from my cousin (part of the “Assorted” Pack of Te Supremo)
Experience: In the aroma part (and not very surprisingly), this tea reminds you immediately of a Earl Grey, which is nice. At the other hand, its flavor is very smooth, but relatively defined, with the lemon notes (more accurately, lemon candy notes) appearing at the end. A little bit above average, i’d say.
Would i buy it?: Mmm… this one isn’t bad, but i wonder if it has enough merits to enter the cupboard. It has a possibility, at least.. hehe.
How i got it: Bought it for home
Experience: Well, judging for its looks and presentation, i had some expectations for this one, but again, it turned out being not that great. Its aroma is, surprisingly, not exactly like the usual Ceylon; i’d say that is less pronounced and crisp, and a bit more like other aromatic, malty teas like Assam. The same occurs with its flavor: is more acidic, a bit more bitter, less rich and less lasting that an usual Ceylon. Not especially good, but not undrinkable.
Would i buy it again?: I’d put this one in the “everyday tea” category due to its price-quality ratio, but in that respect, is well behind Lipton’s Yellow Label, so i’d say “no”.
How i got it: Got a bag as a gift from an aunt, in the same pack of random teas i got Ahmad’s English Breakfast (already logged)
Experience: When i first tasted this tea, it inmediately reminded me of Ronnefeldt’s Organic Japan Classic. I think this is a good experience, because now i can note a bit more clearly the difference between normal green and japanese-style green teas. Its aroma is very floral, similar to the jasmine notes in Whittard’s Afternoon, while its flavor is smoother and sweeter than other greens i’ve tasted. Different, but good.
Would i buy it?: I would say this one is almost as good as my current green, maybe due to the handicap of being a bagged tea. I don’t know about buying this one in particular, but i’m open to keep trying other Sencha’s as potential green replacements in my cupboard.
