Sorry Pekko Teas. I was really looking forward to reviewing this tea. I haven’t had a straight sencha in a long time. I opened the pretty golden pouch and removed the fresh looking leaf. I thought it smelled a little off. Steeped it up and sipped. Yep, I accidentally contaminated this. I had a highly fruit flavored sample I opened and put in the drawer. The next morning when I opened drawer all I smelled was fruit. I removed the fruit tea and put it far away. Apparently too late. This was unopened and it still leeched in to it. Be warned to keep strong odor teas away from more delicate teas. Sorry again Pekko, I’m sure this would have been really good.

I really appreciate someone who can admit an honest mistake. That’s probably why I look forward to your reviews. They’re honest

Oh man… That sucks :(

I agree….with both! Sorry your tea got tainted. It happened to some tea that came in one of my first swaps ever. I keep several of my teas in tins and away from the others because they don’t play nice. Thanks for the warning about the delicate teas needing special protection.
