I used 5g/60ml, 100C water, washed twice, five seconds for the first brew and an additional 3-5 seconds for each additional brewing.

The aroma is very floral, like that of jasmine and saffron. The liquor is very buttery and smooth. The first cup tasted like jasmine, vanilla, and cream. It’s greenness reminded me of Wakayanagi. In the aftertaste there was elderberry, raspberry, melon, and vanilla.

The second cup the aroma of orchid and saffron was very strong, but not overpowering. The liquor still reminded me of a bancha like wakayanagi, with hay and watercress, minus the radish-y part of watercress’s flavor profile and not astringency.

The third was more or less the same but with an even more buttery mouthfeel. In the aftertaste the sides of my tongue tasted like saffron while the back of my throat taste of elderberry and strawberry.

From here the flavor flat lines and begins to die while as light astringency appears. I did a total of 15 brewings with this. All of them past the third were basically weaker versions of each other. The liquor never became bitter and the astringency was never abrasive.

Nothing special, but very nice for the price.

My name is Ian. I’m another tea aficionado trying to spread the love and keep track of my thoughts. Mostly tea and vendor reviews, brewing information, and information on tea ware. All reviews will be my honest opinion of the tea regardless of how I obtained the tea.
