drank Fuji Black Tea by Thes du Japon
215 tasting notes

Strong! Full of flavor yet only a little bit of astringency.
Not as complex as other japanese blacks but full of spicy flavor.
The dry leaf is small and mostly broken so it infuses quickly.

I use a 200ml banko-yaki kyushu so i usually do only 3 infusions. But this tea should be able to manage atleast 4-5. The first 2 inusions were VERY strong. the third only slighly less so.

I used 4g/100ml
1. 45s
2. 1m
3. 1m45s

Good in the morning and during the day. Abit much as an eveningtea.

Boiling 0 min, 45 sec
