I’ve been drinking pretty much exclusively flavored teas iced (aside from my daily pitcher of Genmaicha!) so I decided to go a different way today and cold brewed a simple sencha. Greens are my favorite tea to drink “straight” iced, so refreshing and the flavors really shine. This is buttery, nutty, and grassy—in fact, there’s a roasted flavor so pronounced that I might have guessed this was a mild genmaicha. A womderful flavor combo, though I don’t know if it’s a particularly special sencha. Drinkable for sure, but nothing that really screams “buy me again!” So it’s an in-between tea: I’ll enjoy finishing off my bag, but probably won’t restock. I try to keep my “must have” teas pretty low so my cupboard isn’t always constantly overflowing… though really, I’m not that successful at it!

Greens are my favorite to drink iced, tea. Actually greens are my favorite in general, so that probably helps ;)

Just brewed a cup of this to wind down for the evening. The dry leaves smell vegetal, but upon brewing, the tea has a light, floral aroma. The liquor is a pale, golden colour. Sipping it, I could taste something that reminded me of the aroma of wildflower honey. I could also feel a slightly dry/astringent sensation on my tongue, which might have been due to the temperature of the water. I couldn’t really detect a buttery flavour/sensation this time around. Overall, I seem to have underestimated this tea the first time I drank it; I’m definitely bumping the rating up a bit.

Edit: It seems to get more dry/astringent as it cools, but there’s also a stronger, sweeter aftertaste.

This is the smoothest green tea I’ve ever had. It’s buttery and completely mellow. It doesn’t stick in the mouth and has a clean feeling. I sweetened it a little, but it doesn’t seem to have affected the flavor. Give this one a try; you won’t regret it, especially since it’s a dollar an ounce at the moment.
