My package of momo tea is finally here! To be honest, the way the teas were packaged was slightly disappointing since usually my tea mail comes in a cardboard box, however, these teas were stuffed inside a envelope. So, some of the teas were crumpled when I opened them, but otherwise, everything came out fine and I would still recommend ordering from here! :)
Smell: This smells exactly like a green apple jolly rancher. It has a strong, artificial apple scent that is not unpleasant in any way. However, after it has steeped, the smell has mellowed out a lot and it tastes like a natural, juicy green apple.
Taste: I am not sure if I made this properly. This is some good quality sencha! You really only need a little bit to get a full-bodied flavour. I think I put too much leaf, so it tastes bitter and astringent. However, I think this is a problem that can easily be remedied, and I look forward to trying it again with less tea leaf this time.
For this tea, you can definitely still taste the sencha. However, it also has a very slight and natural green apple taste which I find pleasant.
Flavors: Astringent, Bitter, Earth, Green Apple, Tannin
