Japanese Sun Rouge

This selection has an interesting pedigree, being a mix of two special varietals. The result is a cup somewhat akin to a Kenyan purple tea, with its lavender-brown colored liquor. The aroma has a toasty/nutty sweetness. The cup is delicate and smooth with sweet herbaceous notes and hints of flowers and melon.

Not bad, interesting reaction

It tastes much fruitier than a standard sencha, but it's also been a bit more bitter at the same time. Interestingly, if you add lemon, it turns bright translucent pink.

This tea is simply amazing! I can't stop drinking it. The mix of sweet and vegetal tones with that crisp melon finish- really awakens your taste buds with the clean flavor. I'm in love!
