Recent Tasting Notes
I bought this tea last spring at my local Natural Grocers. I have had a lot of other senchas since then, and now I am not so wow’ed. The leaves are half chopped with some long flat, intact leaves still present. This is still a really nice tea. It’s dark green, brews up a strong, vegetal cup of deliciousness. It’s also not fussy at all. It can get a little astringent if I forget about it, but I wouldn’t expect anything less. A great daily green, for sure.
I bought this tea on a whim while shopping one day, and don’t regret it! This flavorful sencha is cheap, organic, delicious, and lasts forever. I infuse each serving up to three times without a loss of flavor. The leaves before steeping are a pleasant silky texture, and the aroma is verdant and warm. For those who love “grassy” teas, this tea will satisfy. I bought it in Colorado where the company distributes, so I am unsure if it appears in stores elsewhere. But you can order it from their website I’m sure – www.lotusisland.com
