drank Sencha "Matsuri" by Lupicia
1 tasting notes

Bought this tea from Mitsuwa Marketplace in San Diego and was disappointed in the quality, texture, and flavor of the tea. After drinking it I caught the flavors described in user reviews “salty, asparagus, and green bean” though that’s the problem! Initially blaming my taste buds and method of preparation, I tried steeping another batch only to be disappointed once more. This sencha is like vegetable ramen, not the alfalfa, grassy, sweet varieties I’m used to, the tea is so fine that it goes through the mesh strainer. I’m by no means a tea snob I drink about every kind I get my hands on and this was the first time I was disappointed, which prompted me to create a steepster account so I would not make the mistake of buying horrible tea again.

Flavors: Asparagus, Broth, Green Beans
