From DAVIDsTEA

This mouthwatering Japanese sencha is a gateway to green tea addiction. It’s bold, crisp and dangerously delicious, with rich caramelized butter notes highlighting its natural umami flavours. The sweet aroma alone is enough to make anyone fall for it – from straight tea newbies to well-seasoned pros. Perfect for breakfast, second breakfast, elevenses and afternoon tea. You know what they say… two cups are butter than one.

Ingredients: Green tea, natural roasted butter flavouring.

Price: $12.98 per 50g

Day 19 of our Advent Tea Swap. From amandastory516.

A couple of months ago, I had this strange craving for a buttery green tea which never happens. I tried a few but never found what I was looking for in my own cupboard. This tea smells just like what I was craving. It’s very buttery and rich. This steeped up light in color and the aroma has changed some to take on a very slight roasted quality. The taste is buttery and somewhat viscous, much like I had hoped.

Flavors: Butter, Roasted

Preparation
160 °F / 71 °C 1 min, 30 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

This is quite delicious. I drank quite a few unlogged cups of it at work, and am down to one remaining cup (which is ok, because it’s a green and they don’t last forever). Very umami, buttery, with a bit of brown sugar sweetness. I was annoyed to learn that it was, indeed, a flavoured tea (an employee misinformed me, but the ingredients list doesn’t lie), but realistically, there was no way this buttery flavour could have been natural.

Truly my perfect green. If brewed correctly, rich caramel notes and brown sugar are at the forefront, with a mellow vegetal green flavor at the back. So excellent.

I can’t decide how I feel about this one — sometimes when I brew it it’s the beautiful buttery green tea goodness that I love, but then I steep it for one minute longer and it’s a grassy disaster. I’m typically sensitive to grassy greens, so that makes sense, but the cup I’m drinking right now was probably the best brew-job I’ve ever done on this tea. 1 minute and 30 seconds at 195 degrees Farenheit is the goods!

I bought this because of the high rating, but it is a disappointment. It tastes and smells like weak vegetable broth. I don’t get any butter, caramel or other rich notes.
I’m fairly new to unflavored green teas, so maybe my palate needs to mature. I’m going to save this for winter and use it in vegetable broth or cold-fighting tea blends.

Just perfect. Buttery, grassy, hints of vanilla-caramel sweetness. Strong and satisfying. One of my tea true loves.

I thought I had steeped this briefly enough, but it was a little bitter. Will try going under 2 minutes next time.

Average in every sense of the word. Nothing especially bad about it, but doesn’t stand out either

This tea had me at one sniff I knew that I would be purchasing 100 grams. The smell of butter and caramel mixes so wonderfully together and its just not with the dry tea leaves but even continues once brewed. I can get at least 4 really good steeps for with one teaspoon and only let it steep for about 45 seconds, just watch your temperature with this one.

I was glad to read this review. I was against the idea of using flavour with sencha. I will have to try it.
