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.
