drank Tachibana Sencha by Chiki Tea
358 tasting notes

Holly at Chiki Tea sent a sample of this along with the samples for the research, so thanks Holly! I haven’t tried this tea from them yet. As soon as I start steeping these leaves I’m greeted with a nice, rich, umami vegetal aroma that I know and love from their selection of green teas. The first sip does not disappoint. The liquor is the color of a sencha, but it is is so much more flavorful than what I would typically expect! Umami up front with a spinach body and a nice sweet finish. Very smooth and creamy texture. The fact that his producer is known for his hon gyokuro is very apparent in this one.

Second step comes out a vivid green and continues to bring the umami with even more creaminess. Got two more good steeps out of this one, as well. Definitely a good one!

Flavors: Creamy, Smooth, Spinach, Sweet, Umami, Vegetal

I like tea, mostly unflavored. I drink all tea, with a preference for teas from China, Japan and Taiwan, with some exceptions.

I don’t rate until I have had a tea several times unless it makes a very strong, immediate impact.
