259 Tasting Notes
A mildly flavored green tea with subtle edges of strawberries.
Indeed, daily. My regular morning thing, unless I need some jet fuel.
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!
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.
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.
Always in my tea cupboard. A great sencha for the price.
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.
