My first sencha

Postby Samovar » Jul 17th, '07, 14:21

I was at an art festival on Saturday and had the opportunity to try my first sencha - a cherry sencha.

Now I know what all the talk about sencha was about! It's a lovely tea.

I just ordered a Sencha Kyoto Cherry Rose Festival Tea from Culinary Teas. I cannot wait to try it!

I also ordered some Genmaicha.

Excellent. Actually, a cherry sencha was one of the first green teas I ever had.

I am curious though, do you always drink flavored tea? Once you try an unflavored sencha, you may find that you like that even more??? But enjoy your cherry sencha.

I always drink flavored teas with the exception of English Breakfast (Awake by Tazo) and an organic green tea by Bigelow.

Otherwise, I've always enjoyed the different flavors.

I have also tried a Cherry Sencha. Savouré carries one that's quite enjoyable, especially iced. It's a might bit syrupy.
I just noticed Adagio is soon to have a Cherry flavored green as well...
