What I have noticed about Momo Tea’s flavoured sencha is that you can definitely still taste the earthy undertones of the sencha, and the flavourings that Momo adds to the tea are actually very mild!

When I first opened this, it reminded me of nail polish remover. Like an alcoholic, chemical scent. But I expected this to smell like bright and citrus. However, after it steeps, this alcoholic smell calms down and I was left with a pleasant light citrus note.

I have never had yuzu before; however, in this tea it tastes slightly like a cross between an orange and a lemon. But the prominant note in this tea is still the earthy, slightly bitter sencha.

Flavors: Astringent, Bitter, Citrus, Earth, Freshly Cut Grass, Lemon, Orange

Yuzu is an interesting one, to me it’s sort of like lemon and grapefruit. But it also tends to have a noticeable pine note to it!

Silent Kettle

That’s a great way of describing it! :)

My package of momo tea is finally here! To be honest, the way the teas were packaged was slightly disappointing since usually my tea mail comes in a cardboard box, however, these teas were stuffed inside a envelope. So, some of the teas were crumpled when I opened them, but otherwise, everything came out fine and I would still recommend ordering from here! :)

Smell: This smells exactly like a green apple jolly rancher. It has a strong, artificial apple scent that is not unpleasant in any way. However, after it has steeped, the smell has mellowed out a lot and it tastes like a natural, juicy green apple.

Taste: I am not sure if I made this properly. This is some good quality sencha! You really only need a little bit to get a full-bodied flavour. I think I put too much leaf, so it tastes bitter and astringent. However, I think this is a problem that can easily be remedied, and I look forward to trying it again with less tea leaf this time.

For this tea, you can definitely still taste the sencha. However, it also has a very slight and natural green apple taste which I find pleasant.

Flavors: Astringent, Bitter, Earth, Green Apple, Tannin

I’m surprised by how high their recommended temperature is! I would never go over 175°F for sencha, and often even lower than that depending on the quality.

Hmm, I have been meaning to order from this company and haven’t yet..

Silent Kettle

I would recommend it! :) The sencha is very high quality and fresh.

Yes! I think less tea leaf and a lower temperature would really elevate the flavour of this!

Woke up with a massive killer migraine. In mulling over all potential causes, the final possibility was not having drunk enough tea. Ah, maybe that’s it.

I bought this tea at the tea festival here at the end of January. The first several times I had this, I really quite enjoyed it: classic genmaicha. Today, however, I dipped further into the bag, so my dry leaf was far more powder tea and far less roasted rice. Then, despite aiming for a very brief steep, my steeper clicky thing got stuck and didn’t drain properly or quickly enough, resulting in a far longer than optimal steep. So, today, the tea is too strong and a bit bitter. Not the tea’s fault.

My migraine seems to be slowly subsiding. I hope. If so, despite the bitterness, it’s a win.

I will refrain from rating.

Later in the day reflection…
I think I had used far too much leaf when I made this tea today, owing to the fact that it was mostly tea powder and few rice grains. That and the prolonged steeping time resulted in a poor-ish first cup. However, steeping two and three were lovely.

Preparation
1 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

Noon, I hope you’re feeling better now.

Oh, stupid autocorrect. Noon = nooo

Thank you! I enjoyed steep two with some roasted coconut crunchy strips. That and the tea appear to have been the perfect solution toward wellbeing.

Beautiful rich dark green leaves when dry. Changes to medium green spinach-looking leaves when steeped.

The infusion is a light but very green colour, rather than the yellow green we normally see with senchas and Chinese green teas.

Flavour reminds me of sweet grass, with only a hint of dryness at the end. Very refreshing yet still warming in this weather. I would like to try it cold brewed as well in the summer – wonder how that would taste.

This was a sample but definitely putting this on my want list.

Flavors: Spinach, Sweet, Warm Grass, Vegetables
