Leaf Type: Green
Where to Buy: Two Leaves and a Bud
East meets West in this Japanese green tea blend! Sencha is the most consumed tea in Japan. It is long leafed tea, finished in the sun. Our Orange Sencha includes sunflowers, orange peel and just a hint of Italian red orange to add the slightest sweet & spicy tang to this classic green tea.
What a refreshing tea!
The Japanese Sencha tea tastes fresh and crisp. The orange flavor is sweet and juicy. They come together in one cup to create a beverage that is light and rejuvenating. They are well-balanced with neither flavor overwhelming the other. I also note a very slight sharpness to the cup from the sunflower petals. It is just enough to help cut through some of the sweeter notes. The result is a tea that is sweet, tangy and enjoyable any time of the day.
I think what I like best about this tea is that the flavors are delicate, natural tasting and in harmony with the high quality Sencha tea. It tastes like tea – it doesn’t taste syrupy or over-done with the flavoring. It doesn’t taste like one of those powdered soft drink mixes. It tastes like tea!
I tried it first hot. It was smooth and delicious, and I was quite content to finish my cup the way I began. But then my husband came in and offered to take me out to lunch – how do I refuse that? My teacup was left on the kitchen counter to get cold.
When I returned home several hours later, I found that the tea was just as delightful cold as it was hot – perhaps even more so! This would make a fabulous sun tea – just pop a few of the silky pyramid sachets into a jar of cold water and sit it on a sunny porch to steep. A few hours later you’ll have a jar of sunny, delicious goodness that will be a delight to kids as well as adults. A perfect summer-time treat!
Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!
Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
