Another Toronto Tea Festival pick!

I recognized Tea Sakao from how present they are at different markets here in Montreal, but this was the first time I’ve seen them carrying any tea other than matcha. I bought both of their festival exclusive teas, which included this one.

It’s the second tea in the past year that I’ve seen which has sechuan peppercorns in it and that definitely caught my eye. I love the blend I have from Westholme that uses them, and I think it just makes a whole lot of sense with the yuzu since yuzu already had a bit of a peppery note to it.

Steeped this tea was enjoyable! The yuzu flavour is really, really authentic. Very aromatic with a lot of those fresh essential oils, but also very dense and citrusy with so much nuance. It was peppery, but less than I expected given the sheer volume of peppercorns in the blend. As expected, those two flavours compliment really well and create something that has a strong “foodie” vibe and sophistication to it.

Now, was it something I personally loved in terms of taste? Ehhhh…

I think ultimately I just so much more impressed from a flavour pairing and technicality side of things. Not to say it was bad or anything! But I like my other sechuan peppercorn blend a lot more, and I think to reach for this type of green tea I’d need to be in a more specific mood/mindset.
