Appearance: large unbroken leaves with dried bits of orange peel
Scent: before brewing: slightly bitter orange juice | after: watery orange juice
Method: in-cup steel mesh basket | some settlement left in cup. Will try the gaiwan method next time (quick rinse + toss, then brew)
Taste: Like someone “spiked” a Sencha with some Minute Maid OJ. Not bad, but will take getting used to. I can see why someone might really enjoy this in the morning – green tea boost + the OJ flavor in one cup. Why its called Sunset Sencha I have no idea, unless they’re riffing on the orange bits being like the orange in a sunset.
Flavors: Grass, Orange
