One of my favourite teas from the tasting today; the only tea of which I immediately bought 50g.
The dry leaf, which I got to smell, was very seaweed/fishy, much more like a very strong sencha, which, if I had smelled the leaf first, would have turned me off the tea entirely. I’m glad it didn’t, because the taste is absolutely amazing. It is sweet and light, with a surprising touch of an alcohol burn as it goes down. There is also a faint floral backhint, but not off-putting.
An amazing straight green, and a beautiful alternative to the senchas that I don’t care for.
