This is a goodbye tasting note. It´s finished, over, will be missed and I will rebuy. Funny how this tea slowly became one of my favorites. I was not too dazzled when it arrived, but I kept appreciating it more and more each time I had it, it has became one of my top 2 favorite flavoured green teas ever.

It tastes perfectly balanced to me, very naturally flavoured and all “just right” – japanese sencha, big pieces of dried apple and a bit of cinnamon on its places (that is not, overpowering everything else). This new description mentions almonds which I have not noticed! I really like Yumchaa´s blends – very natural, not over the top, good bases and very balanced flavours.

By the way, with this be careful the water is not too hot. Otherwise, such an easy tea.

PS – checking their website, they list chinese green tea as the base now. I could swear my package said JAPANESE sencha, but I threw it away a while ago when moving it to a tin. Dunno. Maybe they tweak it. Still a re-buy.

so it was a “you say goodbye, I say hello” note if you’ll repurchase it soon ;)

Yes, precisely that! I am not instantly reordering, but when I finish a few more teas, will reorder this and few others from the same place. Need free tins and space :)

Bio

Inconstant tea drinker – I mostly drink tea when not too hot. I hang around steepster much more frequently in (northern hemisphere) cold season.

- Teas -

I like all sorts of tea, flavoured and unflavoured, though I am picky. I am always willing to try anything new. I am now particularly interested in single origins.

I am one of those people who actually loves Lapsang Souchong. I am not crazy about Earl Grey, in general. I don´t quite get Darjeeling teas, but I am trying to make sure …

I like rooibos, though not all bases. I loathe hibiscus. I do not like fennel/liquorice/anise in blends or teas with chicory. I am picky about what I consider true cinnamon.

As you can probably tell from my cupboard, the brands I find more interesting right now are Mariage Fréres,Thé-o-Dor and Yumchaa.
