1 Tasting Note

12 tasting notes

Appearance: needle like leaves that are dark green and matte with specks of neon green (stems).

Dry Leaf aroma: fruity, nori, cut grass, hay

6 grams of tea, 4oz water at 170, brewed in a kyusu.
1st steep: 45 second, 2nd steep: 15 seconds, 3rd steep: 30 seconds

First steep: deep green liquor. Very sweet and a bit soupy ( 6 grams is on the high side). There was very little astringency. Dominate notes were sweet grass, hay, subtle wild flower, ) and a fruity sweetness.

Second steep: more of a golden hue in the liquor. Still plenty of flavor. A bit more of a drying minerality come through on this one, kind of like sucking on a pebble! yum…
The floral notes were definitely stronger on round 2 as well. I could also taste the firing of the tea more in the second steep…comes through as an aftertaste that is reminiscent of hot metal…sounds strange, but its in there!

Third steep: Still great color and aroma, but sweetness and mouthfeel are gone.

Overall a nice and easy drinking sencha that is still complex. Has the nice Uji taste and aroma (wildflower) and as I said, is not too over powering. Great tea to get you into drinking senchas.
