I bought 3 blooming balls while I was in Brno, CZ. Let’s see how this goes.
Well I steeped this 3 times already, didn’t really taste good. The official description says it is a white tea, but to be honest it tastes like water! I have no idea why this happened. On the other side, the blooming is great! I’m absolutely in love with the blooming movements. :-)
This is my first tasting of a shincha (and first note to write here in Steepster!) and I was totally amazed by the richness of this tea. I think it’s the umami part of the taste that pleases me most. The aftertaste is long and delicious. There’s a hint of sweetness, but not too much to my taste. Everything seems to be very balanced. I really like this.
On thing that makes me wonder, however, is the infusion time. In English, it says 1 minute, but as seen through the sticker there’re instructions in Chech language (?) under it, saying “4 minuty”.
