Taster’s Review:

Even though I’m not much of a drinker of alcohol, I’ve quite enjoyed many of the classic cocktail flavored teas – like this one.

The Sencha base tastes refreshingly light and crisp.  This is a very smooth tasting Sencha.  There is not a strong grassy or vegetal taste to this one.  It is not bitter, but there is a little bit of astringency toward the tail end of the sip.  The astringency is dry and clears the palate nicely so that I can enjoy the sweet aftertaste of pineapple and coconut.

Even though the tea base is remarkably light, the flavors are still well-defined.  The pineapple is sweet and tangy and the coconut is creamy.  There is even a hint of rum to this cup.  The flavors are very unified… I not tasting one particular note trying to overwhelm the others.  In each sip, I can taste the pineapple, the coconut and the rum, as well as the bright flavor of the Sencha tea.  The taste is delicate and very refreshing.

I like this one hot, but, I think its even better iced!
