drank China Sencha by Aurora

Unusually, my housemate requested a green tea so I was glad to oblige. I’m starting to run low and wondering how different i would be from a different company and whether japanese and chinese senchas are likely to be different

They seem different to me, though it is difficult to put it in words. I like the Japanese green teas better when I am careful not to oversteep them. They seem much more delicate when it comes to bad temperatures or oversteeping. Brewed correctly they seem sweeter and fuller than the Chinese greens.

Bio

I moved from the UK to Australia in 2015. I’ve had a fascination with tea since university, and like to try lots of different types. My preference is for real tea over other infusions: green tea, oolong and black, including flavoured varieties. I love encouraging people to try new teas. I also play the trombone.
Ratings:
>90: Some of the best I’ve had so far.
80-90: I love this tea, likely to buy again
70-80: Good tea. Most tea in my cupboard is in this category because it’s fine to drink it all day!
50-70: I’d drink it if it was offered to me, and I’ll drink what’s in the cupboard, but I’m unlikely to buy it again.
