Essencha was the first tea house I reviewed when I first started this blog back in 2009. Partly this is due to proximity, Essencha is 30 minutes from my front door. Partly it’s because I respect what Tracy was trying to do with her shop.
Those who know my tastes understand that floral teas have never been my favorite. So it comes as a surprise that this floral Green tea blend from Essencha is surprisingly pleasing to the palette.
Unlike most of the tea houses in Cincinnati Essencha celebrates tea as an approchable part of life which anyone can enjoy, as opposed to a more British styled High Tea which certainly has its own attraction.
