1 Tasting Note


This is my first tasting of a shincha (and first note to write here in Steepster!) and I was totally amazed by the richness of this tea. I think it’s the umami part of the taste that pleases me most. The aftertaste is long and delicious. There’s a hint of sweetness, but not too much to my taste. Everything seems to be very balanced. I really like this.

On thing that makes me wonder, however, is the infusion time. In English, it says 1 minute, but as seen through the sticker there’re instructions in Chech language (?) under it, saying “4 minuty”.
