I really like this tea because it’s so versatile. Unlike other teas, I enjoy it in a variety of steeping methods. Each has a unique flavor. Western style—it is smooth and reminds me the most of green tea ice cream. In a gaiwan using extra leaves and short steeps, there is a rich buttery taste. As an iced tea, a new sweetness came out of it.
I’m much more monogamous when it comes to green tea. I could be satisfied with just this one. For a casual green tea drinker like me, this is a good staple to have year-round in the pantry.
Adagio has run out of the larger shipments of kukicha for now, so I hope the next batch is as good.
