Next to my computer I have a cardboard box with all the teas that I haven’t posted about yet. That is to ensure that nothing gets truly forgotten without at least a post. Auggy’s care-package was so large that it made me think I needed a bigger box. And then I did a reality check and realised that it’s not the fact that the box is too small that’s the problem. It’s the fact that I’m not always very good at emptying it.
This one also came from Auggy. I could have sworn I had had it before, but apparently this is not the case. I can’t seem to find any posts about it at any rate. I’ve had the spring harvest before, and I remember this because it was sent to me by someone who told me that the spring harvest was WAY BETTER than whatever it was I had had before which apparently wasn’t autumn harvest.
This one smelled all vegetal and spinach-y. I’m not very experienced with green tea, so I can’t do much in the way of flavour analyses here, but it reminded me of sencha. Somehow it just sort of felt like it wanted to be Japanese. This is very difficult to explain why, so just try to suspend disbelief here and accept that it just felt Japanese.
The flavour was almost exactly the same as the aroma. Again, vegetal, spinach-y and a funny wannabe-Japanese vibe.
And that’s all I can think of to say, really. I’m not sufficiently used to green tea to go any further than that (although it seems to me that I once was?) but it was an enjoyable cup
