How i got it: Got a bag in a swap with my wife (part of Basilur’s “Specialty Classics” Pack)
Experience: Third tea in the Basilur “Specialty Classics” pack, and the only green one. A distinctive part of this tea is its aroma, which i find to be a bit less like the usual green (i’ve tried other Senchas, but this is still different) and a bit more acidic. On the taste side, is very light and less flowery and sweet that the usual green, too. Not bad, but a bit more of intensity/character in the flavor would have been very welcome. In the end, i’d say it’s above the average, but stays behind of its pack partners.
Would i buy it?: Mmm… i don’t think so. Better black (and some green) teas out there.
