295 Tasting Notes
I’m having this again after not for a long time.
It’s still not a huge favorite, but it is definitely true to its description and quite pleasant. Good for an occasional cup/pot but I won’t be buying any more after this package is gone.
As I said before… zingy, raisin, and honey. If you are an oolong fan, I’d definitely point you in this direction!
Oh my gosh this is a weird Sencha! At least compared to the ones I’ve had so far.
I made it 2g to 2oz, 180 degrees, 10 sec
It is VERY strong. There is a bitter green taste to it, kind of like brussel sprouts or the peel of a zucchini. Usually I find bitter to be bad, most senchas I’ve have a bitterness that puts me off to some extent… This isn’t that type of bitter. It is in the roof of the mouth and back half of the tongue. I gives the sip a wow factor
It’s strong and very dark green in flavor, and it has a silky nature to it. A light amount of astringency. A refreshing factor.
This, after their Sakura Sencha, is my favorite Sencha I’ve had yet.
