drank Sakura Sencha by Sugimoto America
1190 tasting notes

It’s been a long time since I’ve had a green tea like this, so I grabbed a little from a tea box. It’s quite grassy and vegetal. It tastes pretty fresh, though it’s not a flavor profile I gravitate towards. There’s something almost like pepper in there, but I think it’s some other herbaceous flavor. I enjoyed this more than I expected. I didn’t notice the sakura specifically, but it probably added complexity to the flavor.

I’m an event planner who always has multiple mugs of tea beside me. Hobbies other than tea include board games, video games, cooking international dishes, science fiction, hiking, jigsaw puzzles, tap dancing, reading, listening to podcasts, and playing with my troublesome kitties.

Favorite flavors: dessert flavors, nutty, melon, mint, strawberry, anything rooibos-related.

Don’t prefer: Smoky, rosemary, savory flavors, floral (other than lavender), plain tea.

I always drink flavored tea, and preferably caffeine-free or black. I’ll try just about anything though! Let me know if you’re interested in a swap!

My ratings are kind of meaningless, but basically
90-100 pretty perfect
80-89 really good
70-79 good, but not the best
60-69 okay, but probably not for me
1-59 varying degrees of dislike
