I prepared it as usual, two teaspoons for my 300 ml cup. As it is green tea, I have used bit colder water, tried close to 80°C, but haven’t measured as usual. Lazy me.
Although based on sight it isn’t the most precious sencha, it is a good base. Very smooth, noticeable in taste as a grassy flavour. I don’t think that freshly cut grass flavour would be necessary, this was maybe better. Ginger and lemon peel combination was great. Ginger wasn’t overpowering the taste for sure, but was noticeable, and lemon was like combined with honey. It was a bit on the sweet side, but not too sweet. It reminded me Halls Relief cough drops (ehm, sounds bad, but it wasn’t). I don’t really know if they are the same in the US, but I hope they are. We have different packages though. And we don’t use them against coughs.
The lemon was somehow juicy, but not sour at all, and as iced tea, it would be another delicious blend. But the weather says no, we had temperature drop to 15-18°C in the mornings, so no more iced/cold brews are needed.
Flavors: Dry Grass, Ginger, Lemon Zest
