5 Tasting Notes
Fresh, clean vegetal taste— just your typical sencha.
This is hands down the best green tea I’ve ever had. Very clean, fresh and hydrating, even with the savory genmai. A must-try for anyone who loves the taste of matcha.
The first time I tried this, I added sugar and I didn’t like it; it was almost nauseating. I gave it another chance this morning without sugar, and it’s much better. I was hoping it would taste more like a chai, but it tastes like a vanilla rooibos. I’ll finish the box, but I won’t buy it again.
I don’t taste any rose, but I do taste the fruit… whatever fruit it may be. This isn’t a powdered mix, but rather a teabag with milk powder inside. I’m not sure if the fruit flavor comes from the milk powder or the tea. It is a little weak even if steeped for 5 minutes, so either use a small cup or two teabags. I like to add condensed milk or whole milk to make it richer.
Like others, I didn’t have high hopes for this tea, but I was pleasantly surprised. You only need to steep for one or two minutes (don’t go over even though it’s a black tea), and I don’t think I could take this without sugar, but it’s very flavorful. Just a basic everyday black tea. I do find it a little too astringent, though.
