This is one of my favourite teas, but it wasn’t as good as usual this time. The first brew was a bit weaker than it should have been, and the second didn’t have as much flavour as I wanted even though I steeped it for a bit longer than usual. I’m getting near the end of my current stash, so it might be time to forget about this lot of leaves and get some new ones.
I’m really addicted to sencha at the moment so when I somehow happened to be going past the local tea shop this morning – no idea how that happened g – I ended up with a packet of this. This makes a typical sencha yellow-coloured brew, and you can really smell the strawberry and raspberry in it. The fruit taste isn’t overpowering, but somehow it does leave a fairly bitter aftertaste, even when making sure that the water is the right temperature for green tea.
This is my least favourite of the sencha blends I’ve tried recently. It’s not awful, but I’d much rather have a cup of Sencha Honey or Lime and Coconut than revisit this one.
The taste is sweet enough not to disappoint the expectations provided by the scent, which is just like the cocktail. This tea left a slight afterburn, but that may just have been because I left it to steep a bit longer than I’d intended, and ended up with a deep blood red brew. Overall, I liked it more than I expected.
