drank Sakura Sencha by Den's Tea
1964 tasting notes

Sipdown, back to 240. This sample is apparently 2 years old, and I overleafed it a bit, so we’ll see how this goes.

Well, sadly, the sakura flavor is pretty much gone. Happily, this is still a pleasant, nutty sencha even in it’s old age. I was considering buying some of the Sakura Sencha this year, but I think I will hold off even though I know I would like to get some just because I would like to see how low my tea stash can go in a year, and there are other things that are higher on my to-purchase list. Next year, if my stash is manageable, I’ll probably spring for some.

I am tea obsessed, with the stash to match. I tend to really enjoy green oolongs, Chinese blacks, and flavored teas with high quality bases, especially florals, bergamot-based teas, and chocolate teas.

In my free time I am a birder, baker, and music/movie/tv addict.

Here are my rating categories, FYI:
100-90: Mind-blowingly good, just right for my palate, and teas that just take me to a happy place.
89-85: I really really like these teas and will keep most of them in the permanent collection, but they’re not quite as spectacular as the top category
84-80: Pretty tasty teas that I enjoy well enough, but definitely won’t rebuy when I run out.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but only if there were no preferrable options.
69-50: Teas that I don’t really enjoy all that much and wouldn’t drink another cup of.
49 and below: Mega yuck. This tea is just disgusting to me.
Unrated: Usually I feel unqualified to rate these teas because they are types of teas that I tend to not like in general. Sometimes user error or tea brewed under poor conditions.
