Every so often, I encounter a tea that seems to have a very rejuvenating effect on me – one that seems to invigorate me from the inside out. This is one such tea.
It has a lovely flavor – hints of a sweet creaminess from the Matcha, and a very vibrant, fresh leafy kind of flavor from the Sencha. It has a pleasant vegetative tone to it – it doesn’t taste overly grassy or anything – just hints of sweet, grassy tones as well as notes of freshly steamed vegetables. Imagine those two notes melding together into one unified flavor – you’d have what I’m tasting now. Not quite grassy … then again … not quite vegetable. Somewhere happily in between.
But even more gratifying than the flavor here, is the way it is making me feel. Having just recovered from a light bout of flu-like symptoms (a 24 hour thing that seemed to do more to wear me down than anything) I really needed something to reawaken me from the inside. Something to recharge me, so to speak. And I can feel this tea doing just that. I can feel it start to rebuild the torn-down, run-down, achy muscle sort of feeling that I have been enduring over the past 2 days following my 24-hour-flu-like-thing.
I’m liking this more and more – not just for the way it tastes, but for the way it is helping me to feel. This tea gets two enthusiastic thumbs up!
