It’s officially The Final Sipdown: Day 3 and I thought I would be decupboarding my Kukicha. (Actually, I still might, but that will be determined later today.) Instead, this lovely little tea is the one that is going bye-bye.
I’m sad to see this one go. It’s sweet and thick and almost a little textured, especially before it cools. I don’t know exactly why Adagio calls it ‘delicate’ because I really don’t think it is. (Just because it isn’t tough enough to jump you in a dark alley and steal your wallet doesn’t mean a tea is ‘delicate’.) This has a little Yunnan-like boldness and a lot of Fuijian-like sweetness and smoothness. Very enjoyable and something I could totally see picking up.
