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.
