Because I haven’t had a Japanese green for a while. And what better Japanese green is there than this? Sweet, rich and just an all-round beautiful cup of tea. Two teaspoons of leaves per cup, steeped for one and a half minutes in water at 55C.
This is a “black” oolong. I usually prefer the “green” oolongs, but I really liked this tea. It’s smooth and a little smoky, with some interesting things going on with the flavour in the aftertaste. Steeped for one minute in water just below boiling point.
Another fruit flavoured tea success. This really seems to be the week for it. The peach flavour smells and tastes exactly like white peaches and, while it’s strong enough that you can’t miss it, it’s also not strong to the point of overpowering the other elements of the tea. Just lovely.
