I decided to give this another shot before I gave a final verdict on it. When I added the water the leaves foamed a little bit – ZOMG, my tea is RABID! XD

Anyways I had to steep it for awhile before I got any significant flavour and when I did it was quite bitter and basically tasted like an oversteeped green. It’s the compost bin for you, Strawberry Sencha!

I should add that the poor rating has relatively little to do with the store itself – this tea was sitting for God knows how long in my mother’s cupboard. Time to get rid of this and get some fresh tea from Zack’s. Hopefully my plants will like this better than I do!

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.
