32 Tasting Notes
This is one of my favorite green teas because it is so easy. I brew it at ~160 for about a minute (less for additional steeps) and it is always delicious. It is pretty sweet in flavor, and has a very grassy, vegetal aroma. I thought I disliked sencha for awhile, before I tried this tea. I think there were two issues- not brewing correctly (too hot and ending up with a bitter brew) and using low-quality sencha. This is good stuff, and very well priced from Den’s.
I have a blend I call Fruit Punch- it consists of mostly hibiscus, with a little bit of Adagio’s Blood Orange, and a pinch of rose petals. The hibiscus has a very deep, tangy flavor. The orange sweetens it up a little, and the rose adds a nice floral touch. I love my “Fruit Punch” iced, but tonight I’m savoring it hot.
