259 Tasting Notes
I never get tired of this sencha. Second steep is still pretty good. Third steep is about as far as I’ll push it (175 degrees, 2 minutes)
My second try of this tea. It has a pleasant toasted flavor, not strong or smokey or wooden. Mellow, subtle. The toasted flavor makes me think of how fall oak leaves smell, if that makes sense. It has a satisfying flavor that is very easy to drink.
I was expecting something very bland or burnt-tasting, but it was a very mild, soft, round flavor. Comforting, relaxing for the evening. I will definitely be keeping this in my stash.
This tea never disappoints! Mellow and comforting, but also strength with purpose. It’s just good at what it is. It doesn’t need to pretend to be something else.
I’m surprised at the suggested steeping parameters. I wouldn’t think that 2:30 would be long enough, but it turned out pretty well. Fantastic aroma and a satisfying starchy flavor to it.
Great aroma, mild flavor. Goes great with plain glazed doughnut holes. Or a cloudy, cold, windy fall day. I have both, so the tea is very welcome!
