Softly green with rose strong in the nose and mouthfeel. Have to be in the right mood to drink a tea a rose flavor, but when I’m in that mood, it is lovely. Very pretty looking tea with the rose petals.
Kyoto Cherry Sencha
The tea has a light liquoring, fresh and smooth with reasonable depth and body. The cherry flavoring and subtle rose hints give the tea a wonderful exotic character.
Hunan Province produces some excellent Japanese style green teas. Early in the new season the tea is a bright emerald green and has the best flavor noted by a spring fresh character with pungency and body.
Iced: Start with 1 gallon of filtered water. Bring half a gallon of the water to boil in a pot. Turn off heat (let cool for 1.5 min.), and add 3 tablespoons (1 oz), let steep for 2-3 min. Strain the tea into the other half gallon of cool water and refrigerate. (if you want to serve immediately serve, you can pour the concentrate over ice)
