But not this one.
The dry leaf is beautiful, dark, shiny, and aromatic... and not just of cherry, but a clear sencha aroma. The tea is a lovely pale bright green, the flavor is smooth and sweet, and the hint of cherry is not overpowering at all, but very complementary of the sencha.
Overall, this was a most pleasing first order from Den's!
