Sencha green tea is one of the most popular teas in Japan and know for high antioxidant content. Sencha is said to have more antioxidants than other greens teas that is why we use this for our mixtures.
This is an excellent Japanese Sencha.
Overall, this cup is impressive in its mild flavor. It doesn’t try to overwhelm me with its grassy tones. The grassy flavor is soft and mellow. It is lightly sweet. There is a background note of floral tones that remind me of the air on a breezy day in a flowery field. A pure and simple tea.
There is a buttery note to this tea that develops as I continue to sip it. It was barely there when I first started sipping this cup, and now that I am nearly finished, that creamy buttery taste has developed nicely. There is also a light astringency at the tail of the sip that cleanses the palate. The aftertaste is sweet and lightly vegetal although it does not linger long.
This is my first tea tasting from Supple Skin Boutique, and I’m very impressed with the quality of this tea. It is delicious and I like that it is certified organic. To be truthful, I do not drink tea because it is good for me or because it offers healthful benefits to my skin. I drink it because I like the way it tastes – and this one tastes great. That being said, it is nice to know that tea is good for me and helps maintain skin health! It’s like having my cake and eating it too – but without all the guilt and calories!
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!
