drank Decaf Sencha by Harney & Sons
724 tasting notes

Just saw my first tasting note on this one. It’s from four years ago. So this is an OLD tea (yes, it’s the same tin of tea from 4 years ago). It’s obviously not as strong as it used to be in flavor, but it’s still definitely drinkable. It’s got a brothy, nutty, toasty, vegetal profile. It’s decaf, so it has that flat decaf tinge in the aftertaste, kind of like what a box of dry pasta smells like. But since it’s H & S, the leaf is such good quality that I don’t mind it.

I’m drinking this because I’m primarily after the health and mood benefits of green tea, so the flavor is secondary to me anyway.

Flavors: Toasty, Vegetal

Hello! 28, female, American. A total hopeless bookworm— I have a Bachelor’s and a Master’s in English. I also love dogs, all things that are colored purple, and sarcasm. I work in the Information Technology field at present.

I’m not a swapper, but I hope we can still be friends :)

Favorite tea types: Black, pu’erh, oolong, kombucha, genmaicha, matcha, rooibos, honeybush (recent change of heart there), and floral greens.

Favorite flavor notes: Roasted, fermented, earthy, floral, nutty, bread-y, umami; dessert-inspired flavors like chocolate, vanilla, and maple.

I’m very picky about chai and spice/ spicy blends as well as fruit-flavored teas; they really need to be done right, IMHO. I’m iffy about mate, as well as herbal teas, although there are a few tisanes that I enjoy (roasted dandelion root, chamomile).

Flat-out dislike: White tea, most unflavored green teas, hibiscus in high quantities, plain peppermint.

90-100: Perfection and heaven and magic, all in one cup.

70-89: Good.

50-69: Meh.
