OH, I like this one a lot. It has a spinach-y taste to it, strongly vegetative, not bitter, just sweet with a savory overtone. Very enjoyable.

It is smooth with a light astringency to it. Very nicely rounded. A relaxing cuppa that is also invigorating in its own way.

I’m off to write a full-length review on this one …

Liberteas Thanks for this one!
I totally agree! Spinach! Juicy Spinach! It’s vegetal, slightly sweet, slightly grassy.

Very nice green!

Backlogging from over the summer during my little break from writing tasting notes here.

The dry leaf was dark green and slightly curled with a scent that reminded me of my mom’s potpourri. I brewed it in a brew basket and a 12 oz Italian mug. The wet leaf was a nice vegetal scent consisting of sauteed spinach and asparagus. The infusion was a nice golden color and smelled predominantly of asparagus with a hint of a floral note.

The taste was a nice light asparagus with a subtle floral note that I couldn’t pinpoint with a texture that was slightly creamy like milk. I found no astringency or bitterness and it re-steeped well three times.

This sample was provided by Butiki in my last order – thank you so much!

I brewed this according to the directions on the directions on the package – 3 minutes at around 180 F. I probably should have used a little less water for the sample…

I’ve never had a South Korean green but I like this one! It is a bit reminiscent of spinach but it’s also very sweet and light. Definitely has a smooth and creamy mouthfeel with perhaps a bit of spice on the backend? Might be a tad astringent for yours truly however. Definitely worth checking out.

This is an interesting change from my usual morning sencha. I have to get more now that Buiki restocked the earthen gaiwan I’ve been wanting. =)
