Trying a different brewing method for my second try of this. This time I’m doing a lazy man’s sencha-style brewin because anything else required too much thought. 4g/6oz/ 175°/pour started at about 30s.
Yum. Each sip tastes a little different – sometimes I get a pungent, sweet, vegetal sencha, then other sips give me a sweet, hay-ish taste that makes me think of Rishi’s Snow Buds but richer. Sometimes it tastes very much like a Japanese green. Other times I think I’m drinking a Chinese green. But not a dull green, salty Chinese green. Fresh, bright green with nice sweetness and no salty/mineral-y tingle. I’m also not getting the astringency I was previously, which is fine by me because I’m kind of a wuss when it comes to that.
I’m upping the rating on this just a bit because this is very tasty. I could see myself buying more of this.
