The description for this tea claims it is simple and mild in flavor due to the lack of fertilizer in the growing process. Regardless of why, I do concur that this tea is rather simple. That isn’t a knock against it in any way. It’s an easy one to drink. Crisp and tasty notes of grass and spinach. Also some astringency balancing out the sweeter flavors mentioned above. Even when I gave it a longer first steep, it didn’t get the depth that some other Japanese greens will have, but it also didn’t get unpleasantly astringent or bitter. A nice offering from Yunomi and Ogose…simple, to the point, easy to drink and understand. The tea I’m drinking along with the football game tonight (yaay football’s back!)

A bit about myself: 22 years old, college grad (Double major in Anthropology and History). I plan to make a career of archaeology and hopefully travel (much of) the world in my days.

I enjoy many things aside from tea, including gaming, mixing cocktails, reading, watching anime, and painting miniatures.

My favorite type of tea is sheng puerh. Particularly younger stuff, if only because I haven’t gotten the chance to taste much of anything aged. I also really like oolong (Taiwanese, Wuyi, Dancong, etc.) and Japanese Green Teas. I do also enjoy most other kinds of tea, but they aren’t what I normally buy. I’m not a huge fan of shou puerh, black tea, or flavored blends, with few exceptions.

I really like interacting with the tea community, so if you ever want to talk or swap teas or anything, feel free to shoot me a message or something. Follow me and I’ll follow you back. Probably ;)
