Quite a nice Asamushi from O-Cha..actually from the Tsuen Tea house said to be one of the oldest in Japan. This tasting is the Shincha version btw. Went fairly cool and a min 30 first steep. nice astringency balance. second steep went 1 min and then back up on third and fourth while going a bit hotter each time. not my favorite Asa Shincha but definitely worth a shot

Preparation
155 °F / 68 °C 1 min, 30 sec

I think so far my go to Asa (shincha version only) has been the Maiko Kinari , almost equaled by O-chas Warashina Supreme

Ah, I missed that one (Kinari) this year. And it appears the Warashina (permanently… unless Kevin brings it back). The Kinari is on my list… good to know. I think my favorite the last two years are the hashiri shincha’s from Den’s Tea (and parent co. Shirakata Denshiro Shoten).
