Even though I’m not much of a drinker of alcohol, I’ve quite enjoyed many of the classic cocktail flavored teas – like this one.
The Sencha base tastes refreshingly light and crisp. This is a very smooth tasting Sencha. There is not a strong grassy or vegetal taste to this one. It is not bitter, but there is a little bit of astringency toward the tail end of the sip. The astringency is dry and clears the palate nicely so that I can enjoy the sweet aftertaste of pineapple and coconut.
Even though the tea base is remarkably light, the flavors are still well-defined. The pineapple is sweet and tangy and the coconut is creamy. There is even a hint of rum to this cup. The flavors are very unified… I not tasting one particular note trying to overwhelm the others. In each sip, I can taste the pineapple, the coconut and the rum, as well as the bright flavor of the Sencha tea. The taste is delicate and very refreshing.
I like this one hot, but, I think its even better iced!
