This is a sample from my swap with ashmanra. I think this may be the first time I’ve tried THE O DOR…?
How can this possibly be a Chinese green tea…? The leaves are small and thin, and super dark green in color. If I didn’t know better, I’d say this was a Japanese sencha, and a shaded or steamed sencha at that.
The flavor of the base tea also says “Japanese” to me. It’s a bit intense and quite vegetal with notes of umami. Maybe it’s a Chinese sencha…? Regardless, it’s definitely of quality. I oversteeped it a bit – I would recommend a 2 minute steep for this one. But even with some bitterness, it’s pleasant.
The flavoring is very nice, light and buttery biscuit with vanilla essence.
I can see an order from THE O DOR in my future… Too bad I would have to spend €150 to avoid paying €35 in shipping fees… Sounds like a group order opportunity. ;)
Looking at their €75 advent calendar now… ❤
