224 Tasting Notes
My 1st sencha. Judging by the previous review I didn’t pick the right one to start with but it’s worth a try. Lets see if I like this.
Leaves look quite similar to Kukicha tea I got home. Dark green. Not sure if that’s how they’re supposed to look.
Tea is deep yellow. Smells similar to that Kukicha again. Just less strong. I’m really not an expert on these. For me it smells quite nice.
OK I kinda get the reviews now. This is not as good as it smells. That Kukicha I keep comparing it too is so much better. This is bitter first of all. Not smooth enough. Just not very good. The after-taste is let’s say OK but still not very good.
Wouldn’t buy this one…
Gotta try some different Sencha’s.
Loose tea smells awesome. Very fruity.
Tastes interesting. I like the fact that fruit isn’t totally overtaking the scent of green tea. In the citrus fruit blends that often happens.
It’s not sweet. Bit acid actually. For my taste it’s missing some fullness – smoothness.
I came to realise that I really like plain quality green tea. Blends I prefer with black tea.
This one is refreshing and quite tasty but doesn’t wow me at all. Solid rating tho…
Ummm this smells reaaaaaly smoked. Idk. Not so optimistic about liking this one. But worth a try. My first smoked tea.
Don’t like this smell and I so don’t wanna try it. Takes a deep breath.
OK well it’s more drinkable than pu-erh. Tastes smoked which is weird – but better than it smells. But I must say id rather eat smoked cheese which this reminds me of than drink this tea.
Wouldn’t buy it. Smoked goes better with food… Imho.
Seeing that it has good ratings from the pro tasters here ;) I will skip mine.
I guess this is a love it or hate it kind of tea…
Leaves look promising. Large chunks, a flower, very diverse white ingredients. Smells nice. Colour’s yellow as it should be. I think I might like this one.
Mhm white tea FTW. At first it’s slightly sour. But then white tea kicks in with that full nutty taste. I love it and I missed drinking plain white unscented tea. It’s not quite ‘Silver needle – awesome’ but its quite delicious.
Good job with this one Golden Moon.
Nice blend. I’m just getting a hint of pu-erh tho. Bergamot is strongest in it. It’s quite refreshing and all the ingredients did blend in quite well. Color is dark brown somewhere in between black and pu-erh. Smells of bergamot. It’s better than earl gray.
I like this combo.
First pu-erh I’ve tried that was in loose leaves shape. It’s deffinitelly better than those I’ve ordered from China on eBay. Way more drinkable. The pu-erh note is the same but this one is less bitter and well just way more drinkable. I actually like it. First pu-erh I would drink just for the sake of drinking it (not tasting it). I’ll rate it well simply because I didn’t try better yet…
It’s earty, kinda sweetish but not too sweet. Dark colored like it’s supossed to be. Nice one…
