drank Sencha by Whittard of Chelsea
199 tasting notes

The box holding the teabags says it should be brewed with boiling water for 4-5 minutes, but I found 1 minute and 80 degC was perfectly good. Maybe I’ll try their suggestion, after discovering how good my yellow tea is after brewing for 20 minutes, but I always go for a short brew time on sencha, because I find they can get bitter. This was perfectly good, although unsurprisingly not as nice as the loose leaf sencha I have

Preparation
180 °F / 82 °C 1 min, 0 sec
Cofftea

I prefer mine a little cooler, 160. I also use 1.5 leaf and only 4oz water. I agree w/ the 1 min… 4-5 w/ boiling.. wow! That’s even way off for the "all greens are created equal theory that I hate. The flavor is amazing, but the volume takes some getting used to. Pu Erh is also becoming good practice for getting used to smaller cuppas:)

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.
