this is interesting – very seawatery, very vegetable-y, i think they call that umami? it’s a little mellower than other senchas, there’s still a tiny bit of bitterness, but this is smooth and sweet and salty. a little heavy on the salty, this first steeping. will update upon seconds.

Preparation

huh. it went all mushy, the second steeping. i don’t know how to describe, but i did not like. the first time was good! maybe i did something wrong inadvertently…i’ll try again in a few days. meanwhile, i have a houjicha craving. steepster box, here i come!
