It’s ok this tea. I love the way it smells, really, really awesome. But it is too much perfume for me. It is too heavily scented.

Pas mal du tout. habituellement les thés parfumés me font fuir, celui-là est assez subtil pour être supportable.

I mentioned a few days ago that I’m a fan of cherry green teas. And fortunately for me, here’s another one.

In the packet there’s a strong smell of cherry, like Luden’s cough drops. After steeping, this becomes mellower, and takes on a vanilla note as well. The tea is a medium, golden yellow color and has some particles suspended in it.

The flavor skips that vanilla note I mentioned, but keeps the cherry and adds a floral effect as well, which I suppose isn’t surprising given that this is flavored with cherry blossoms rather than cherry fruits. It’s not perfumy, though — it’s a gentle cherry essence mixed with a mild, grassy green tea.

A very nice example of its kind.

Though pretty good, Sencha Imperial falls short of Mariage Freres’ higher grade of Sakura Tea. I’m probably a harsher critic than most. And it is cheap enough that you can actually afford to drink it if it suits you. I just won’t purchase any more of it once I finish off this tin.
