In this article, I discuss the best teas I drank in 2019. I picked a 2017 Silver Needle, a Yakushima Sencha and a 2003 Ban Zhang sheng puer.
Nio Tea’s Masuda Yudi Sencha is a really warming Japanese sencha. It is sweet in combination with a grassy undertone, which makes it perfect for rainy days.
Nio Teas’ Gyokuro Cha Musume is an almost perfect tea with an umami flavour profile. You can also taste some hazelnut and a subtle sweetness.
Yakushima sencha is a Japanese green tea that promises to be sweet. It’s a typical Japanese green that tastes like a fresh breeze on a hot Summer’s day.
