drank Sencha by Golden Moon Tea
185 tasting notes

Missy got her gaiwan for Mother’s day today, so we thought we would give this another try. Maybe our gringo brewing just didn’t do it justice?

Nope. Still not tasty. I’m going to go ahead and chalk this up as a ‘I don’t like Sencha’ party, and never try it again. At least, not anytime in the near future.

Not all sencha is the same, so, I wouldn’t completely dismiss it. You might find one that you really do like.

TeaBrat

Very true. Many senchas are different!

Oh Dylan please don’t do that! Honestly Golden Moon has maybe five teas I really like and the rest are just MEH. Also I really would go to a company that specializes in Sencha / Japanese tea before deciding. Try Dens !!

Okay I won’t totally write of Sencha… I’ll just wait a little bit before I try to venture into their world. :)

Kittenna

Yes, I agree, definitely don’t write off sencha. I had pretty much done that, but have been trying some lately (especially from Den’s) which are actually quite fabulous. Pretty sure there are also both Chinese and Japanese senchas, which taste different (I couldn’t tell you the difference yet though).

Bio

My fiancé and I are beginning to enjoy tea infusion, and it’s slowly becoming an interesting hobby that the two of us can share. Maybe not slowly… it’s somewhat amazing how much tea you can buy when everything looks shiny and new.

Tea Rating system:

90 – 100: This is a tea I will always have on hand at work, and at home. I will leave it on altars as offerings of perfection.

80 – 89: This, or one of it’s close cousins, will likely be in my cabinet at home. When this tea runs out, I will buy more. I’ll always wonder if there is something better, but be too afraid to look to stray from home to find it.

70 – 79: Definitely good, but not a clear winner. I enjoy it, I’ll finish it, but I probably won’t buy it again until I’ve exhausted all other versions of this product from any reputable retailer. Though, it may enjoy a resurrection for custom blending.

60 – 69: This tea is okay, but definitely not something I’m going to brew again. I’m going to give what I have left away.

30 – 59: I didn’t finish drinking this tea. I actually poured it out, and went for something else. I’ll still give this tea away, but I’ll do it with a warning and a plead for forgiveness.

0 – 29: This tea is riding securely towards an iceberg at the helm of the failboat. I’ve taken this out of my tea tin, and laid it on a napkin as potpurri. I do not consider it fit for human consumption.
