With a pretty mix of grassy looking Chinese sencha leaves and sizable apple chunks, the aroma from the dry assortment very clearly reminds me of the sour apple candy I loved so much as a child.
The liquor, a light yellow, provides somewhat lighter notes of that sour apple flavor, but contains a deal more vegetal tones. I noted roasted leaks and steamed bok choy.
I was a bit disappointed in the flavor. It’s not as strong on the apple as I’d hoped. That being said, its subtlety seems to soften the vegetal strength of the sencha to provide a nice balance for the palate.
I recommend this brew if you enjoy fruit teas, lighter Chinese greens (i.e. Lung Ching), Rooibos and Yerba Mate.
