This is a nice mellow tea that has almost a powdery mouthfeel. The color is a lovely deep green and the depth of flavor is really nice if oversteeped (which I always do with green teas. I’m sorry?). This tea is nice when you just want to relax. I take it with milk — but that’s just me. I think that the milk brings out some of the softer notes from this sencha, which is the only kind of sencha I can find in my town (in the International store, which is seriously the most fun store where I live). This tea is perfect in spring and autumn, especially when oversteeped and with milk.

Calochortus likes plants and knitting and bacteria. She doesn’t have a very large tea allowance, so expect a lot of grocery store/local/home-grown/bagged teas. She’s grown up with tea, as it is part of (half of) her culture.

Her favorite teas are black and usually fruity or vanilla-y. She likes to put milk in her tea, too, but she’s trying to widen her palette with green teas and rooibos. She finds that tea leaves are great for composting, too.
