259 Tasting Notes
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!
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.
