Now this is a tasting from an inexperienced tea drinker which why the flavors are so… vague. I’m starting to get the general sensations but not the very specific.
So I got this last week and brewed it and was very impressed, its mild, soft and sweet, with only a very slight astringent taste and no bitterness. There is also a strong floral scent to it, as well as a vegetal taste, but I cant point to a specific flower or vegetable yet to be more specific.
Now I watched a few videoes from Mei leaf and Tea DB and both of them recommended a quick brew in a gaiwan, under a minute for Sencha, which this is actually rather similiar to. . This is what I did, about 4g of leaf for a small gaiwan. This gave one of the best tasting Japanese teas I’ve had yet.
Ill be tasting this again a few more times and trying to update the flavors and scents to be more specific, but I highly recommend trying it.
Flavors: Astringent, Floral, Sweet, Vegetal
