This tea steeped for a long time. I recently discovered that I like the flavour of green tea when it is steeped without an infuser; being too lazy to strain, I drink my greens traditionally, with the tea leaves in the cup. I don’t like my teas piping hot, so this tea has a long time to steep. I reckon this may have led to a more green tea experience than advertised on the label. Luckily I love Sencha; my daily go-to tea.
Sencha pear has an interesting aftertaste. It tastes like a bitter pear essence coupled with sencha rather than the fruit itself. It steeps a gorgeous color and has a nice mild taste with a lingering aftertaste. Had I not steeped the leaves without an infuser I would likely have been able to get two or three good cups out of each tbsp (plus or minus half depending on the strength you want steeped).
It’s a great sipping tea for anyone with a penchant for slightly bitter tastes. I enjoyed my first cup of it today.
