drank Sencha by Yamamotoyama
39 tasting notes

Marathon study session for the boyfriend and I tonight. Our last finals of our college career are on Wednesday, so we’re sprinting to the finish with many cups of tea. He’s not as much into green as I am, but tonight he agreed to share some of this sencha with me. I used 4 generous teaspoons to about 20 ounces of hot water, which turned out not quite as strong as I like it, but mild enough for the boyfriends’ tastes.

It tastes… unremarkable, but in a comforting sort of way. This tea is starting to lose my favor somewhat, but I think it’s just because I would rather be drinking kukicha or jasmine pearls.

It’s fun to make tea in a coffee press. :)

I am lucky enough to make my living as a martial arts teacher and as a barista. When I’m not training or making cappuccinos, I relish cooking, reading, growing plants, and of course, drinking tea.

I love greens the most… the grassier the better! I also love oolongs and whites. I have a weak spot for anything with jasmine, mint, or lavender.
