I found this tea somewhat thin compared to some of Thes du Japon’s Kamairicha offerings this season. The well rounded autumnal roasted chestnut flavor is weaker than usual, and replaced with a somewhat unpleasant (to me) peatiness. The body is thinner than normal and an unfamiliar bitterness is present. This contrasts with the approaching-perfection “Kamairi cha from Takachiho” from the same company. It could be due to my preparation choice of lower temperature.
