I’ve had a couple of gyokuros now, so I at least am establishing a baseline for what these taste like. This one was a little odd. There was a bit of a metallic, tannic taste that reminded me of a black tea. It’s a bit drying on the sides of the tongue, and there’s a hint of bitterness.
For the more dominant flavors, I’m getting chestnuts, asparagus, and buttery chickpeas.
