This came from Tea-Sipper, I bought some of this in her stash sale a few months ago along with some other goodies.
Not loving this one, maybe I need to play around with it some more. I don’t get any of the tasting notes that other’s have mentioned. There was a lot of safflower in my strainer. I wonder if that is what I’m tasting so much of. I get notes of anise, but am missing the cake aspect. The Cinnamon and cocoa shell comes through faintly and more so in the last few sips. For a Sencha it’s not very buttery. Maybe I didn’t store this properly. I’m not sure what treacle is supposed to taste like but I get the impression it’s supposed to be quite sweet which isn’t the case in this cup. I hope I have some better luck with this one in the future.
