Oh, this is fine but I’m unenthused. The berry flavours are nice, and it’s subtle enough not to be overbearing (read: I will be able to finish the pouch), but I just don’t get along with the sencha Teaopia uses in their blends. It’s kind of scratchy, and not very flavourful. I’m also finding that their blends kind of blur together for me as the fruity ones end up tasting the same.

I find the same with DavidsTea’s sencha. However, 52teas’ seems to be much better, I’ve found so far!

Jessie

Yeah! I think the flavoured senchas I’m most consistently impressed with are Tealish’s and Den’s fruit-flavoured ones (the pineapple is the ultimate flavoured sencha!).

I am not familiar with the Sencha that Tealish, Teaopia, or DavidsTea uses, but, I know that 52Teas uses a Chinese Sencha while Den’s uses Japanese, that’s why these two are different from one another…

Jessie

Japanese sencha seems to be the norm, which I do think works best with most fruit-type flavours. But, sencha is so variable according to freshness that I find companies that take note of this tend to have better blends. If it gets stale then they tend to taste a little dusty and bland, I think. So when I say that I like one sencha base over the other, I typically just find it fresher and crisper as they’re always Japanese aside from 52Teas. The Chinese sencha is interesting, for sure.
