Voilà! Travel Mizuba Matcha is a single-serve packet that is 100% biodegradable. How cool is that? I was inspired to whisk up some matcha in the park.
Sanxia Honey Black Tea was mellow and sweet with notes of honey and dark red fruits. Later steeps had a lingering dark cocoa aspect that I really enjoyed.
MEM Tea Tung Ting is an affordably priced Dong Ding oolong that offers notes of toasted cereal followed by juicy hints of apricot.
The First from Oscar Brekell's Tea Selection is a sencha made from the rare Kondowase cultivar. It was a real umami bomb with a lingering floral aftertaste.
Dong Ding Roasted from Tillerman Tea was surprisingly mild but offered a lot of staying power. The roast was well balanced without being smokey or heavy.
It's easy to think of sencha as a single entity, there are layers to explore. In this tasting, I'll be comparing three different sencha steaming levels.
