September 2021 Tea
Still not a big fan of Chinese Sencha. However, since it has a similar flavour profile, it does exceptionally well when paired with kiwi; the overall effect is a bit like a tropical green smoothie! I generally like coconut of all kinds and there is a lot of that here too. The flavours supports my current daydream of being on a tropical vacation, which is extremely welcome imagery in the middle of November (it’s sunny today too so the weather is working with me here too).
I enjoy this tea increasingly more as it cools.
PS- I added strawberry, banana, and pineapple to the “flavours” here because we don’t have kiwi in the database – but kiwi has similar characteristics to those three very different fruits (tart, acidic, citrusy, pithy/starchy, soft jam sweet, mellow sweet). The coconut kiwi combo kind of creates its own mock-banana note actually.
EDIT – kiwi was added to the database (Thanks Cameron B.) but I’m still keeping “banana”.
Flavors: Banana, Coconut, Fruity, Grass, Juicy, Kiwi, Sour, Spinach, Sweet, Tart, Tropical
