Tea Review: Sencha Kyoto Cherry Rose (Metropolitan Tea Company)

Sencha Kyoto Cherry Rose
Metropolitan Tea Company
Type:  Flavored Green
Origin:  China, Hunan Province
Product Description:  The tea tends light liquoring, fresh and smooth with reasonable depth and body. The cherry flavoring and subtle rose hints give the tea a wonderful exotic character.

Temperature: 160° F
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 2 minutes

The dry leaves have a cherry aroma.

The infusion is light yellow-green with a floral, cherry aroma and flavor.

This is a fine tea for anyone who enjoys cherries.  While the aroma remained lively through multiple steepings, the flavor and color had paled significantly by the third steeping.

This was tea was provided as part of a workshop.
