My boss and I went to ‘our’ cafe this afternoon after work. We discovered it at some sort of tea-introduction event thing a couple of years ago (where I learned exactly nothing and violently disagreed with other things, although I kept my misgivings to myself). They have a fair few things to choose from, although there is a shocking lack of oolong of any sort. Seriously. Not a one.
But anyway, today my boss opted for coffee, so I took a small pot for myself and I chose a sencha with apple and lemon.
It was… lemon-y. Not very sencha-y and not even slightly apple-y, but definitely lemon-y. I’m not going to go into a lot of detail, because it’s several hours later now and I wasn’t paying that much attention, but it certainly wasn’t what I was expecting when I chose it.
Drinkable, nice even if you’re looking for a straight lemon tea, but ultimately disappointing when led to believe there would be more to it.
