Well I’m awake and wrapped in my robe in a zombie like state (and looking very much like one this morning too). I need tea and I need food. … tea…must drink tea….zombie moan. No brains for me though this morning I think I will stick with fruit salad. Sticking on the fruity side of things this morning I will try this fruity based green Sencha tea. Another sample to use. :)
The blend looks pretty enough with green leaves and red petals finely chopped and mixed together with a few pieces of dried fruit. It has a sweet and fruity yet buttery scent.
Once steeped the tea is yellow in colour with a toasted, fruity, buttery aroma.
The Sencha is buttery, toasty, thick and bitter while the fruit is waxy, sweet and sour. I can’t get past this thick waxy taste that reminds me of the smell of manure (it’s strange how a flavour can remind you of a smell). The fruit is not really that fruity and I cannot tell what fruit it is or even guess. There is only a little bitterness and it can be over looked if I set my mind to it.
It’s drinkable but just not my ‘cup of tea’ and I’m glad I only ha a sample and now it’s gone.
