Un thé de qualité et très abordable. Parfais pour ceux qui veulent s’initier à la saveur umani et au thé japonais

Très vrai, pas onéreux donc accessible en plus d’être savoureux, une note
fruité s’en échappe lorsqu’on l’infuse!

Ippodo tea indicates that Sencha should be steeped for 60 seconds at 176 F (80 C). Suggested ration of tea to water is 2 Tbsp (yes, Tbsp!) to 7 ounces (210ml) of water. To cool water to the proper temperature, Ippodo suggests transferring the water once by first pouring into a cup and then the tea pot. A second and third pot can also be brewed at 176 F (80 C) water with no steeping time.

I had a WONDERFUL cup of cold-brewed Hosen at the Ippodo shop in Kyoto. I think that this was the first time I understood the meaning of “umami” – it was unlike anything I’ve ever tasted. Any Japanese green tea can be cold-brewed by steeping 2 Tbsp in 7 ounces of chilled water for 15 minutes. A second and third pot can be prepared by brewing the second pot for 7 minutes and the third for 3 minutes.

Its aroma has most of the good things about a Sencha’s aroma. While its taste is powerful,. hinting at Umami flavors, but very plesant.
