If you read my notes regularly, you know I am always quite suspiscious about green teas.
This one is the only green I ordered along 15 others (50g of each) – all the others are with a black tea base.
As often with green flavoured teas, it smells incredibly good. Berries are there for sure with a floral shadow.
I made a quick steep to avoid any bitterness especially because in addition of being a green tea, this is a sencha.
I brewed it for 3 minutes not more and this is just perfect for me : none bitterness nor astringency : it is a mellow green (yes ! I found one, I’m so happy !) even a very mellow green tea base.
The flavours are just incredible : blackcurrant is the main note but violet is still detectable (the Dammann Violet, closer to the violet candies rather than a typical flowery violet tone)
It is a delicious green tea, very sweet, very fresh.I imagine it can also make a wonderful ice-tea.
I am very glad to have chosen this one in addition of the black teas I ordered.
