Day 13 of the PostTea advent is plain ol’ sencha, which is fine as far as it goes. It’s smooth, buttery, slightly grassy – pretty much just your average sencha. There’s a slight dankness that emerges as the cup cools, and it begins to turn ever so slightly towards bitter, but that’s perhaps my fault for getting distracted. Should have drank it hot!
This isn’t the most exciting tea, but I’m appreciating it today as a refreshing change of pace. It’s a good palate cleanser after several days of heavily flavoured teas.
