Late on a Sunday night finishing up housework before bed, I decided to give this flavored sencha a try. I've always been partial to Japanese greens, and though the pieces of this tea were small in the bag, I still wasn't too worried. A light orange scent wafted from the sachet when I opened the package, relaxing and refreshing at the same time.
The brew is a dark golden color, with a lovely light floral-orange aroma. The overall flavor is also very light, with a drying quality on the tongue. Just a hint of the orange flavor comes through, lending sweetness to the unassuming vegetal qualities of the brew. The liquor is slightly thick and very pleasing in the mouth.It's a very pleasant and relaxing tea...certainly worth a taste.
