Adding 1/3rd of sencha really helps balance the unnecessary sweetness of this batch
What’s so strange?:) It’s too sweet and not enough astringent as it is, sencha fits perfectly to fix it :) Also, I couldn’t answer your earleir comments because for some reason steepster thinks I have negative amount of comments on that note XD
I’ve never mixed sencha and black tea.Sorry if it seems perfectly normal to you, but to me it sounds like adding instant coffee to an oolong. Could you have used less leaf possibly (a less sweet longer steep) and retained the flavor of the Yu Lu Yan Cha? Since this is one of my favorite tea’s, I may be overstating my reaction to your blending. No offence intended to you.
Nope, less leaves doesn’t help with taht particular batch. I was in love with the original but this one is just barely tolerable without adding something to fix the balance of sweetness and afetrtaste
And japanese sencha really helps in that particular case btw :)
