drank Sencha by Golden Moon Tea
67 tasting notes

Oh, Golden Moon…I had my mouth all set for some sencha this morning and I get…this. I dunno, this tea was a bust. I have a pack of sencha from my travels to Japan, and I gotta say, this Golden Moon sencha looked very pretty. Nice vibrantly deep green needle leaves with little tea dust. But after a 3 minute brew, it was like I was just drinking a cup of hot water. I didn’t get the slightest bit of buttery sweetness that usually comes with a sencha brew. I added a little sugar, and it was like drinking hot, sweet water!

Meh.

OH NO! Although, based on your steeping parameters I’m not quite as shocked. If you have any left, I’d suggest using the steeping parameters here http://www.denstea.com/index.php?main_page=perfect_brewing. Based on my own experiences, I think that will make a better cuppa.
