Why do I keep forgetting about this tea?? WHY? Because it wasn’t old enough 2 months ago when I last had it, I had to let it get even older? Ugh. But it still tastes so yummy. Not as fresh, but it is still good tea.
I used a little over 5g for 6oz. Probably could have used a bit more. But it is sweet and butter and grassy and good. I really really need to get a different kyusu for use with some of senchas. They are so fine the clog my sasame filter making a second pour sooooo much slower. Keeping that in mind, I used my (now lidless) teapot which has an in-spout mesh filter (replacement pot coming soon). Much easier but there is just a little bit of flavor that seems to be lost with getting almost no leaf in my cup. But I know the second cup will be better this way so I’ll deal. And put a larger-filter kyusu on my wishlist. Which means I get to look at Artistic Nippon again. Bonus.
