The aroma of the dry and the spent leaves is very fruity. I get guava and mango with a hint of passionfruit and marigold in there as well. The tea liquor however smells more vegetal, almost like steamed leeks. My guess is that comes from the Sencha base.

This tea seriously dries the palate. The finish twinges of guava. However, rolling the liquor in the mouth provides a more apricot taste. You can tell this is a Sencha even through all the flavors. There’s the vegetal tones inherent in the green tea, a nuttier lightly roasted sense I get which would be a more southern grown plant. The gritty bitterness from a Sencha is clearly present.

This tea would be maybe a 75 or 80 if it didn’t seriously remind me of having cotton balls in my mouth. That kind of irks me if you know what I mean.

Insane about tea and technology!

Born in Maryland in a suburb of D.C. humorously named “Chevy Chase” I moved to Cincinnati as a… wait… you don’t want to read this crap!

My tea birth came in 2004. While I had been drinking tea throughout my life it was more of a seasonal enjoyment and not something as empassioned as what it gives me now.

I’m currently working to start a couple tea related businesses and run a little tea blog reviewing tea and tea related items.

You should drop by! Seriously! The door’s open!
