drank Sencha Quince by T2
63 tasting notes

Ok, I’ve been struggling with this cold and sore throat for over a week now, and today is the worst I’ve felt. But I simply have too many samples to try, and I can’t hold myself off any longer. These may not be the best conditions for truly evaluating this tea, but they are some of the best conditions for just saying, “Stuff it! I’m gonna do what I want to keep myself comfortable!”

So with that bit of self-indulgence in mind, this is really nice. I get florals and vanilla with a sweet-tart fruitiness all on top of a base of mind-soothing sencha. It’s smooth and rather buttery. I can see why it’s one of T2’s most popular green teas. The kids can run around, fuss, and generally destroy the house; they’ll be alright and I’ll be alright. That’s the mood this tea has left me with. (Do-gooders, relax: I’m not neglecting my kids. I’m gaining mental strength for the rest of our day!)

You can read a separate review I did for this tea and a couple of other T2 greens on my blog: http://hardlysupermom.wordpress.com/2012/08/23/progress-report-card-t2-nine-green-pack-part-3/

Relax=that’s funny. Too many people are too worried about how someone else is carrying themselves. They’ld really hate to hear me say I try to sell my kids to anyone who shows a shread of interest in them, even if it’s they’re just trying to make small talk with me…why do you want them.JK

Bio

I’m an American-Australian living in Sydney with my Aussie husband, very active toddler girl and bouncing baby boy. I need tea to get me just to Lil’ Man’s morning nap, let alone the rest of the day. I’m a newbie to the world of pure teas (and loving every sip of it!), having delighted in flavored teas and blends for years. The hardest part seems to be getting the teas to Australia without exorbitant shipping costs.
