Starting my day with a cup of this. I’ve been desperately trying to sipdown Adagio’s Candy Apple black tea the past few days (the bottom of the tea tin is in sight) but I really need a break from it.
This Sencha tea came in a selection box, so I don’t have much of it to drink. It’s still as good as when I first reviewed it though.
It’s fresh and grassy in aroma, with a hint of astringency and sourness that you get from lemon juice.
Once brewed, hay-like notes emerge and the sweetness intensifies. Sugar snap peas and dew-damp morning grass.
As I pointed out in my review, this is not the only Sencha tea that T2 offer. This one is labelled “Sencha” while another is labelled “Japanese Sencha” which kinda suggests that this one isn’t actually from Japan. So, is it still Sencha? It’s something I ponder as I sip this cup.
Initial blog review for this tea was in early December: https://www.immortalwordsmith.co.uk/t2-sencha-tea-review/
