Taster’s Review:

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!

    This is the first time I visit your blog. I like the design!
    Aiya is one of my favorite green tea companies, their matcha is especially good.

      Welcome, Ricardo, and thank you for visiting the SororiTea Sisters!

      I really like Aiya’s matcha as well. Some of the very best that I’ve tried!

Our mutual love for tea and writing about it inspired us to start this blog so that we could better share this love with others.

One thing I (Anne) learned very early on in my career as a tea artist is that everyone has different preferences, and every single tea tastes differently on every single palate.  So just because one of us doesn’t happen to like a tea, doesn’t mean that YOU (the reader) will not.

We try to be as impartial as we can.  We do have our favorites.  We are human.  But we do our very best to be as fair and as honest about a tea as we can be.

You might not agree with my assessment – or with Jennifer’s assessment – of a tea.  But that’s OK… if we all liked the same exact tea – we’d only need ONE kind of tea and … wow… that sounds really boring, indeed!

What a beautiful world it is that we have so many teas to suit so many tea enthusiasts!
