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.
