Sipping down a sample.
The tea smells and tastes like umami. Bonito flakes and soy sauce, but very delicate and lightly sweet.
Would be excellent in chazuke, a Japanese tea and rice soup.
Not 100% sure about sipping on this one.
As it cools, it gets a little fruity, a little bitter. It’s really quite interesting, but I’m glad I only have this one cup sample to sip down.
