60 tasting notes

I am remiss. I have been drinking this for about a month and haven’t reviewed it. I thought I had. First of all I love the way it smells. It is effervescent. The citrus-y sencha smell of it alone was the reason I bought it. It is sweet and the aroma sits on the back of my palate like fizzy lemonade. It’s nice to look at, too, plesant green leaves that unfurl in the pot, yellow and pink blossoms and flowers add a nice color. It brews a pale yellow typical of green tea. The brewed aroma is not as intense as the dry but still lightly citrus over a green tea base. As a flavored green, it tastes more of the lime with a sweet edge from the mallow, chamomile, rose and sunflower petals than of green tea but the tea flavor isn’t completely lost.

It is a lovely light cuppa that I particularly enjoy after long sunny afternoons.

Bio

Grew up in Texas, lived and worked in Australia and New Zealand for a year. Now I am back stateside and living in Oregon. I drink most any kind of tea but blacks are my favorites.

“Tea is the taste of my land: it is bitter and warm, strong, and sharp with memory. It tastes of longing. It tastes of the distance between where you are and where you come from. Also it vanishes—the taste of it vanishes from your tongue while your lips are still hot from the cup. It disappears, like plantations stretching up into the mist.” Little Bee (Chris Cleave)
