It’s been a while since my last note…doesn’t mean i didn’t dring any tea :)
Recently i received my package of new teas from my local dealer. I’ve updated my collection with japan teas. One of them was this nice Kabusecha.
The tea was nominated into the national and also perfectual tea competition so i had some expectations. The Kabuse was left in shadow 10 days before it was picked. This gave it a very fresh and quite strong fragrance. Looking at the leafs it looks like very precise processing this tea has gone throuh. The leafs are even in size and have a very nice plastic fresh dark green colour.
I used my small kyusu to brew it. Temps should not be very high for such tea. You are welcome to use quite many leafs if you like strong flavour (that’s me).
Steeping was around 40sec. for the 1st brew and 30 sec. for the second. The final bawerage had a nice light green colour and fresh vegetable smell. A bit sweet. The taste on the other hand had only a little bit of sweetness. It consited of more layers od tastes – from fresh green/vegetal to a taste of young fruits. The aftertaste was very long, but delicious. I just had to take a pause after every sip to enjoy it.
A very good tea indeed. I was also very pleased with the other teas from Yabukita i drank in the past. Will look forward for the 2010 spring teas from them. Until than i can at least enjoy the last supplies from 2009.
