Opening the packet, the smell was not so grassy, but it almost reminded me of oolong. The leaves as well are blue-grey. I was expecting a fluorescent green colour because I have just been drinking sencha, but it has th colour of honey and the smell of the brew is sweet too. I could eat some lemon cake with this for sure. After all that, the taste was a little disappointing. Or at least, not quite what I expected. I’ll have to drink it again to decide what I thnk
That’s the stuff. 2 pints of sencha that I wasn’t in the mood for, but this is really hitting the spot! Just needed to chill with some music, a magazine and some tea – I don’t do this enough
Like last time I drank it, I find myself trying to work out the interesting aftertaste that it leaves. It’s certainly very pleasant, perhaps a bit woody, I still can’t put my finger on it. This tea is good enough that I had it one day and then the next day wanted to get some more. Normally I chop and change a lot so to go back to it so soon means it’s pretty tasty!
I have decided I like it a lot, because it is light and sweet.If you just hold the tea at the back of your mouth before swallowing, you get a lovely indescribable flavour. But I still prefer some of the other green teas I have. It’s not bad for a light cuppa before bed
