From Tealet

Shincha from Tecchan, a 5th generation tea-maker and also Akky-san’s neighbor. His skill shines with this exceptional shincha, which is smooth while rich in umami flavors.

Happy spring!

Since the weather has finally warmed up, I decided to start my days off with green tea rather than black, and this was a nice small sample.

The dry leaf for this smelled quite seaweed-ish, but the brewed tea was not very astringent or umami, which I liked. I even oversteeped it slightly, and that didn’t pose a problem to me – a rarity for me when it comes to Japanese greens.

This is a Japanese green tea I will probably finish off with very few problems. :D

The instructions recommended using 1.5 Tablespoons of this, but I suspect that’s a typo (how could you possibly need 1.5 T of shincha?). This tea gets 5 out of 5 caffeine marks, and remembering how buzzed I got on the last tea that was marked that high, I used a scant teaspoon, and I find it is plenty strong.

I was curious to see whether this tea would really taste like buttered asparagus, as promised on the label, and it does! The stony mineral notes are also there, giving it a little zip, but it is primarily a smooth buttery vegetable tea. Good to focus with, as the caffeine brings plenty of alertness but the flavor is soothing. The steeped leaves are lime green, and the liquor is a pale gold.
