I had this again yesterday evening, and I noticed something for the 2nd time that really impressed me.
There is an underlying umami that comes out of this tea, especially in the aftertaste. It is a really unique flavor I’ve only found in green teas, almost marine-like, but it comes through at the roof of the mouth and in the nose at the very end (again, the aftertaste). It is a little sweet, too. Anyway, I was surprised that this came through in a roasted tea, and so wanted to give this one another thumbs up. That doesn’t seem like something that would come through in any roasted green tea….I think it probably has to do with the fact that these are tencha, rather than bancha or some other low quality leaf.
