drank Sencha by T2
87 tasting notes

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/

Flavors: Astringent, Grass, Hay, Lemon, Peas, Sweet

180 °F / 82 °C 1 min, 30 sec 2 g 8 OZ / 250 ML

A British tea lover with the crazy idea that she can review every possible tea. Ever. Check out my blog to see my progress so far…

My all-time favourite tea brands that I go back to for a cup of comfort:
Whittard of Chelsea
English Tea Shop

I rate teas on a spreadsheet, giving marks out of 10 for:
Condition of the tea leaves/ingredients,
Quality of ingredients (e.g. artificial flavours or freshly dried fruit?),
Dry aroma,
Wet aroma,
Sensation (how does it make me feel?),
and Colour.
Then, with a little head scratching, I do the math and work out the score out of 100.

Open to tea swaps – even internationally!
