259 Tasting Notes
Trying a new-to-me green tea from o-cha.com. This kabusecha has a very, very light liquor and mild flavor, slightly sweet. Grassy, not bitter. 175 is a bit hotter than I usually steep my Japanese green tea at, but I decided to follow the suggested preparation parameters marked on the packaging. I’m extremely happy with the results!
A solid tea that brings to mind 400+ year old hard wood furniture and tapestries, an old stone home, a comforting fire in the fireplace. Aged? Classic? Vintage? Historic? Maybe all these things, maybe not. A tea that tastes from another time, and takes you there.
