Steepster is buzzing w/ tastings of Adagio’s savory teas sampler. Does anyone know of other savory or umami teas out there?
Not sure but would LOVE to hear about them if they are around!
Other than Adagio’s savory teas the only one I’m aware of is The Tea Farm’s Vinegar Black.
i want to try that sampler but i dont know what my sister is gettin me from there for christmas. the anticipation is killing me! :)
Could ya’ll post a link to Adagio’s savory tea sampler please? I went over and rummaged around their site but couldn’t find it. I’m sure I’m just missing it. I just wanted to see what the teas were. Thanks.
Japanese greens tend to have a bit of a savory Umami flavor, in fact it is what Gyokuro is known for. But certain sencha-s have it to a degree.
Lapsang souchong and gunpowder.
Would http://steepster.com/teas/teafrog/6561-bamboo-shoots-flavoured-green be considered umami? Yet another reason I need to go to Japan. I’m having trouble putting my finger on exactly what qualifies as umami and what doesn’t.
