drank Organic Sencha by T2
200 tasting notes

I always enjoy sencha and this is no exception. There is a fair bit of dust in it, so I always have a bit of leaf in my cup, which isn’t ideal, but I don’t mind too much.
I’ve been experimenting with brewing time and poured out a sample every thirty seconds. The packet advises 1-3 minutes. I find 1 minute too short, with not enough taste and with the water at my house, I can taste the water through it quite strongly. Three minutes is OK, but a bitter taste is starting to compete with the normal grassy sencha flavour. My preference is 2.5 minutes (2 minutes is OK too).

I moved from the UK to Australia in 2015. I’ve had a fascination with tea since university, and like to try lots of different types. My preference is for real tea over other infusions: green tea, oolong and black, including flavoured varieties. I love encouraging people to try new teas. I also play the trombone.
>90: Some of the best I’ve had so far.
80-90: I love this tea, likely to buy again
70-80: Good tea. Most tea in my cupboard is in this category because it’s fine to drink it all day!
50-70: I’d drink it if it was offered to me, and I’ll drink what’s in the cupboard, but I’m unlikely to buy it again.
<50: Glad I tried it, but it’s not very nice.
