I got this at my local Japanese grocery store. I want to love it because it seems so “authentic” as it is straight from Japan and has pretty much no instructions or tasting notes written in English. It’s a very finicky tea to make – if you brew at too high a temp, too much leaf, or too long, it will be undrinkably bitter. After numerous attempts I finally got it right – low temperature, 45 second steep, and about 1/2 tsp of leaf. It’s has thick texture, veggie taste with marine-y notes. I like.
