This was a gift from Martin! Many thanks!
Today I am decluttering my tea stash. A word to the wise – the more you tea-clutter the more you have to de-clutter.
I am so mad at myself each time I uncover a really nice tea that I have neglected or forgotten. As I dug through my multiple boxes if samples, swaps, and gifts, I found this one.
To be honest, I do not love peppercorns in tea. A little bit is okay, and fortunately it is usually easy enough to pick out, and that’s what I did. I made a small pot of this for afternoon outside sipping and found about six peppercorns in what I scooped out.
The end result is quite pleasant! This is a very pleasant tasting sencha. The aroma is definitely watermelon but the taste is more of a melon mix to me, maybe some honeydew with a touch of pomegranate.
All in all, this is really nice and I will enjoy sipping it down!
Thank you, Martin!
