Trying a different brewing method for my second try of this. This time I’m doing a lazy man’s sencha-style brewin because anything else required too much thought. 4g/6oz/ 175°/pour started at about 30s.

Yum. Each sip tastes a little different – sometimes I get a pungent, sweet, vegetal sencha, then other sips give me a sweet, hay-ish taste that makes me think of Rishi’s Snow Buds but richer. Sometimes it tastes very much like a Japanese green. Other times I think I’m drinking a Chinese green. But not a dull green, salty Chinese green. Fresh, bright green with nice sweetness and no salty/mineral-y tingle. I’m also not getting the astringency I was previously, which is fine by me because I’m kind of a wuss when it comes to that.

I’m upping the rating on this just a bit because this is very tasty. I could see myself buying more of this.

175 °F / 79 °C

I’m trying to be a better tea logger and actually post semi-regularly again! I’ve let my tea tasting senses become too complacent – it’s time for some focused and attentive tea drinking!

Sometimes my notices for PMs and such have been questionable. Email me at your own risk at aug3zimm at gmail dot com.

1 – 10 – Bleck. Didn’t finish the cup.
11 – 25 – Drinkable. But don’t punish me by making me have it again.
26 – 40 – Meh. Most likely will see if the husband likes it iced.
41 – 60 – Okayish. Maybe one day I’ll kill off what I have in my pantry.
61 – 75 – Decent. I might pick some up if I needed tea.
76 – 85 – Nice. I’d probably buy but wouldn’t hunt it down.
86 – 100 – Yum! I will hunt down the vendor to get this tea!

Not that anyone but me particularly cares, but there it is.
