Drinking this a bit out of season, but it’s a fantastic tea. Delicately flavored, and gives the feeling of a crisp autumn morning, watching the leaves fall.

I am trying this tea for the first time.
The loose leaf tea contains small sugar crystals, which makes it nice to look at. The scent is noticeably cherry without being overpowering. When brewed, the tea has a light flavor, but not dull like some other decaffeinated teas can be. The flavor profile is there, but on the delicate side. A bit of milk in the tea is nice as well.

I am drinking this one again in the afternoon. The salty flavor helps cut the sweetness of a snack I had just previously. The flavor this time has kind of been lost behind the edge of the salted-leaf. Next time I will try a lower temperature.

I am trying this tea for the first time, using water just off the boil.
My first impression is that it’s quite different. I can understand why it has such wildly different review scores: there is an undercurrent of salted cherry three leaves that is quite different, and can be puzzling if you haven’t tasted them before. For me, the saltiness does indeed provide a clean taste, as described by Lupicia. It’s not my favorite flavored green tea, but it is a nice one nonetheless.

I haven’t been posting much lately, life certainly has a way of getting in the way.
I really can’t say enough about this tea. An excellent sencha for the price. It always hits the right spot.

A full-bodied, deep-steamed sencha from Lupicia. The flavor is complex and has a thickness to it, but is still refreshing. Normally I like light-steamed or medium-steamed green teas, but this one is very good, too.

Merry Christmas!
A very delicate sencha to sit and be thoughtful with.

It’s been a while since I have drank this (I have been consuming other teas that have been building up in the cupboard). Like putting on a soft, broken-in shoe, this tea means comfort!
