Found the other half-packet of this while prowling through wilderness of the back half of my tea cabinet. Now that the temps are spiking, I’m craving lighter, greener, oolonger varieties, and this fits the bill nicely.

It’s a good quality sencha and when you taste it, your brain says, “cool, tropical!” It does not necessarily say, “ah-hah! I’m tasting pineapple.” The flavors and florals counteract any heavy vegetal taste that might normally come with the sencha.

Somebody asked me once when I became a tea junkie; I think it dates back to college when I needed caffeine for a 7 a.m. class but chose not to do coffee. My favorite teapot is a medium-sized Brown Betty given to me by my Mema; the painted flowers are chipping off, but the size and feel is perfect. I rejoice when I get a morning to brew a pot of loose tea starting with a kettle; not a bag and a hot pot.
