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.

I finished being a student in 2008 and began working in The North, where “tea” means “evening meal” which confuses me regularly. I love encouraging people to try new teas, but when I’m not doing that, I play the trombone, play some sport (badly) and socialise
