Recent Tasting Notes
Woke up with a massive killer migraine. In mulling over all potential causes, the final possibility was not having drunk enough tea. Ah, maybe that’s it.
I bought this tea at the tea festival here at the end of January. The first several times I had this, I really quite enjoyed it: classic genmaicha. Today, however, I dipped further into the bag, so my dry leaf was far more powder tea and far less roasted rice. Then, despite aiming for a very brief steep, my steeper clicky thing got stuck and didn’t drain properly or quickly enough, resulting in a far longer than optimal steep. So, today, the tea is too strong and a bit bitter. Not the tea’s fault.
My migraine seems to be slowly subsiding. I hope. If so, despite the bitterness, it’s a win.
I will refrain from rating.
Later in the day reflection…
I think I had used far too much leaf when I made this tea today, owing to the fact that it was mostly tea powder and few rice grains. That and the prolonged steeping time resulted in a poor-ish first cup. However, steeping two and three were lovely.
Beautiful rich dark green leaves when dry. Changes to medium green spinach-looking leaves when steeped.
The infusion is a light but very green colour, rather than the yellow green we normally see with senchas and Chinese green teas.
Flavour reminds me of sweet grass, with only a hint of dryness at the end. Very refreshing yet still warming in this weather. I would like to try it cold brewed as well in the summer – wonder how that would taste.
This was a sample but definitely putting this on my want list.
