drank Sencha by Joy's Teaspoon
177 tasting notes
2 tsps in 6 Oz water at 190F for two minutes and thirty seconds.

Wow, this is a fruity steep! It tastes like plum gum!Not much caramel like this but there is some of the grassiness I wanted. Very unique! There’s another purple fruity taste that I can’t name…not blueberry…oh! Acai berry?! Yeah! I’m definately uping my rating for this.

Second steeping: A little weaker but the same over all.

Third steeping: The caramel came back. Caramelized plum gum. Hmm. Gourmet fruit gums? I’d buy that. I wish this flavor was a little stronger. Very nice and hydrating.
This is a high quality sencha but not for me. Fascinating and enjoyable but not for me; I like grassy, vegetal sencha. Highly recomended for the oolong drinker or anyone who wants to taste plum gum. Big thanks to Joy’s Teaspoon for the sample!
