drank Sencha "Nara" by Lupicia

My first order from Lupicia just arrived, and I wanted to try this sencha. I am usually hesitant to brew at such a hot temperature, but I wanted to try their recommended parameters first.

Pleasantly grassy aroma, a medium green color that tends slightly towards amber. To my pleasant surprise the resulting tea is not bitter at all, as senchas brewed too hot tend to be. An excellent cup!

drank Cream Earl Grey by Tea Embassy
259 tasting notes

A mild Earl Grey with a vanilla cream accent. Light bergamont flavor. I suppose I would describe this tea as light or mild all around. Pleasing for when you are looking for a relaxing cup and not a rattle-your-teeth strong cup.

Considering my general preferences with tea I surprisingly like EG (I think it’ll be great iced this summer!), but I’m a bit hesitant to try cream EGs (unless cold) because I’m afraid they’ll taste like a hot dreamsicle.

drank Lapsang Souchong by Tea Embassy

A strong aroma, yet quite mild flavor. Smoky, to be sure, but not as “teethrattling” as other Lapsang Souchongs I have tried. An excellent tea for contemplation in the early morning chill as the rest of the world wakes.

drank Berryblossom White by Tazo
259 tasting notes

First attempt of this tea hot. It has a hay-ness of white tea, but I can’t taste much flavor beyond that. Perhaps a lower temperature will work better.

I have tried this tea iced and it was really nice, but it seems like this isn’t that great as a hot beverage. I’ll try again.

Both the tea and cherry are mild and delicate in flavor, similar to a French pastille candy. The flavor of the tea isn’t that interesting when just finished steeping and piping hot, but become more pronounced as the tea cools.

A very direct flavor, malty and warm. Round but spicy at the same time, which is interesting. A dash of milk helps smooth it out.
