I have bought yesterday two flavoured green teas, as I was kind of craving them; and Bird & Blend subscription don’t deliver them often + I wanted something else than rose green teas. So, I took this one and Thai Lemon, which were pretty nice smelling (hard to smell through mask though!) and this sounded quite nice too.
Unfortunately, this one from the bottom of the jar, and thus sencha was quite crushed and I am afraid it is affected in taste. It was quite buttery green tea base and flavour was quite straightforward raisins (sultanas? What is the difference native speakers?) combined with cloves. It wasn’t offensive in any way, but nto really what I have been expecting at all.
“mellow tones of marzipan, vanilla and seasonal spices” and I only got one spice and nothing else. Maybe my first 3 teaspoons were just unlucky and I will get the other tastes later. I don’t think either there would be a big difference between 70°C and 80°C in flavours, with exception of the buttery sencha. I have been expecting more.
Flavors: Butter, Cloves, Raisins
