drank Sencha Overture by Adagio Teas
61 tasting notes

Putting off work and back logging tea.
I had this last night and was only half way paying attention. From my recollection, it is very very vegetal. In fact, I felt like I got my daily serving. But, as a veggie person I wasn’t terribly bother by it.
As for being a sencha, my plate isn’t well rounded enough to say it was good or bad, but from my one prior experience with sencha (at Texlux now that I think of it) this is what I think of when I imagine sencha.
Again, I might have over steeped it and will aim for about only a minute next time round.

The Japanese greens tend to be a lot more grassy than the Chinese, but “very, very vegetal” sounds like you’ve over-steeped it – Japanese greens are pretty sensitive to that sort of thing.

I do over steep my teas more often then I like to admit, I will retry with much less steep time!

Most often thinking of tea, microbes, dinosaurs, and Romans. Tends to write novels about the littlest things and likes to put tea in the pockets of her pants to be found later in opportune moments.
Very bad English, hates full sentences and tenses, but damn good at her Latin, okay with her Greek, and will eventually be a doctor working with MSF.
