Aroma: Strong, brittle citric notes, punchy lemon scent.
Flavour: First taste, disappointing. Despite containing wakame, there’s no exotic pzazz. It’s a little savoury, sure, but mostly, it’s all lemony. However, the flavours feel organic and pleasing. All this is coming from someone who isn’t super into sencha and hates hot lemon!

Final Thoughts
For me, personally, I am so adverse to lemon, particularly when it’s hot, that Sencha Seaweed Wakame is really not a tea I would ever come back to. BUT. It’s so well created that I can completely appreciate the notes of the tea. The Gilded Teapot has turned a tea I would normally gag at the thought of, into something I could, almost happily, sip at.

Flavors: Grass, Lemon, Lemongrass, Umami
