Trying to get a quick sipdown in here, since there were only 5 teabags in this little box which came in a gift set that Todd brought me back from Japan in 2018. Three are currently cold steeping in the frige, and I’m preparing the other two now as a hot brew to take to work.
This is nice! The yuzu isn’t overpowering, but is present enough that the green tea has a noticable citrusy flavor. I really enjoy the flavor of yuzu too; it is the distinct lemony flavor that is very sharp/tart and has just the mildest peppery aftertaste, and doesn’t wax cleaner-esque in my brain. The sencha itself is quite nice here too; I’m getting a slight buttery note, which I find rare in sencha but love when it pops up, as well as sweet and mellow grassiness.
I imagine the sharp citrus note will translate even better to the cold brew as being quite refreshing! Very enjoyable. I’ve got the yuzu burpies this morning!
