I like this tea very much. The jasmine aroma and flavor are very present, but not overpowering, and the green tea is not bitter or metallic (which has happened in some jasmine green teas I have tried). A very soothing combination.

Autumn is here, and my favorite tea is once again in my cupboard. Sweet and nutty and mellow, the flavors and warmth of fall.

drank Vanilla by Lupicia

The vanilla is a warm flavor, earthy rather than sugary-sweet. Very nice, and I bet it would mix well with other teas. Tried with a little bit of milk.

The fragrance of the dried leaves is very sweet and reminds me of a little-on-the-cold-side Autumn afternoon, walking in a park or a forest with fallen leaves. Generally I don’t brew green teas with boiling water, but the vendor suggests doing just that. Doing so, I was pleasantly surprised with the outcome. The tea base does not taste scorched or bitter at all, and the chestnut pieces add a buttery sweetness to the overall drink. This tea is very calming and relaxing.

Trying a full cup now. Again, the temperature is a little lower than what the vendor recommends. The is a soft roundness to the flavor, followed by a slightly sharp grassy finish. A deeper aroma, rather than “bright” of a light-steamed sencha. I definitely think this would be better with savory foods or a meal, compared to sweets or desserts with a light-steamed sencha.

A little nutty, a warm flavor. I drink this in the evenings when I am working but don’t want the caffeine to keep me awake.

I brewed this tea a little cooler than what is recommended by the vendor. My first impression is that the tea has a deeper, richer flavor than other senchas I have tried. I think it would be really good with heavier foods, rather than a light sweet.

I really like this sencha. It is quite easy to make (as long as you mind the temperature), and a second steep is also very flavorful.
