259 Tasting Notes

This morning I am trying Supreme Breakfast with a slightly hotter temperature than I normally do. This increase is pulling out a little more bitterness and spiciness from the tea, but neither is overpowering. I’ll keep using this temperature for a while and see if I prefer it to my usual 185.

A mild assam. Not too peppery, but with a pleasant warmth. Second steep is pretty decent, too.

First impressions: a mild, grassy sencha, light in flavor and color. More detailed notes to come. But so far I like it a lot.

This tea has wonderful body to it. A definite weight and mouthfeel that is welcome with food. A deep green liquor with a slight golden hue to it. Grassy, astringent but not bitter. A stronger flavor than light-steamed sencha, and with much more body.
