I was really excited to try this flavored Sencha. Back when I was still flavoring and blending teas, I had a green apple flavored green tea, and I’ve been hoping to find one that I like as well as I did that one. I’m keeping my fingers crossed here!
Mmm! This is good! It is different than my blend, but then, I kind of expected it to be, because this is a Japanese Sencha and my blend was made using a blend of Chinese green teas. But the apple flavoring is very good – almost cider like, but without the spices. I like that the apple flavor is very true to the fruit – it is a little bit sweet, and a little bit sour, and there is such a crispness to the cup as well … just like biting into a fresh, crunchy apple!
This tea has a very autumnal feel to it – then again, apples always make me think of “back to school” and the month of September… fall. But, at the same time, it tastes light and crisp – almost spring-like too! A lovely tea that can be enjoyed any time of year!
This is one that deserves a place in my cupboard. I like it a lot!
