From O5 Tea

From grower Furuichi Shoji. It is grown in the old Samurai town Chiran, in Kagoshima prefecture, Japan. Here, the climate is ideal for tea – warm air mixed with cool breezes from the Bay of Kagoshima.

Sweet, thick and full-bodied. A grassy and vegetal green tea with refreshing astringency and light cream aroma.

I was pretty sure this would not be a tea for me but it’s not a bad little tea. It’s not something i’ll ever re-stock but I for sure can drink this down. It’s very green…and tastes like eating spinach. There’s a mouthiness to this that i can’t quite describe.

So apparently 1 minute is a bit too long for this tea (or at least, in the tea:water ratio I used). Sadly, there was some bitterness that impacted the flavour for me. However, I still liked this tea – it was intensely vegetal in both aroma and flavour, and definitely now holds the spot of the most spinach-flavoured tea I have ever tried! It literally tasted like pureed boiled spinach. Which I strangely actually liked….

Thanks for letting me steal a sample out of your package of this, Sil!

Backlog:

A really delightful Sencha. A surprisingly full-bodied, satisfying Japanese Sencha. Sweet and very pleasant to sip. Here is my full-length review: http://sororiteasisters.com/2013/01/31/chiran-sencha-from-o5-tea/
