Good, very grassy, sweet. Not as buttery/creamy as the Imari nor with the same mouth-feel but still good. Still has a great fresh taste which is surprising since it’s best by date was in July. (Oops). Don’t think I get any sweet potato taste out of it though. If pushed I might say the taste I get when I hold it in my mouth is raw sweet potato but I don’t think anyone would ever drink this and good “mmm, sweet potato”. Though they might go “mmm, grass clippings”. But you know, good grass clippings.
Last of this one (still attempting to finish of drips and drabs – go me!)
Super lazy – used a steeping ball in my tea pot so I could make two cups of this without having to worry about a slow pour making it bitter. Go steeping ball. Yeah, I feel a bit like a loser when I use it but hey, it worked well so I’m going with it.
For being so freakin’ old, this tea’s still pretty decent. Good mouth feel, nice full(ish) flavor. Still don’t get sweet potato out of it.
