The other day, the dry leaf in the warmed kyusu smelled delicious, just like peaches! Unfortunately, the taste did not deliver in the same way.
It is a good tea, but the best way I can describe it is a ‘lack of carry.’ The initial flavor is good, but it doesn’t have a lasting aftertaste. It seems like a decent asamushi sencha from a good region (I think near Hon yama), but I find it hard to believe that it is a “very rare” tea as SpecialTeas describes.
It could simply be my brewing technique/parameters, so I will have to keep playing with them to see if I can draw this one out.
