Japanese teas are not my forté but I usually enjoy them. This was a sample included with my matcha re-order — thank you Alistair :) I brewed the entire sample western in one go before work.
Cloudy brew full of sweet umami and good body. I remember it being extremely smooth and not leaning too heavily in any green-tasting direction. I got 3 great infusions, the first 2 of which ended up going in my thermos. It held up really well for several hours. I’m sure I could’ve gotten a fourth infusion based on how full of flavor and body the third was, but as it goes, I was in my typical morning rush despite giving myself almost 2 hours to get ready.
Flavors: Smooth, Sweet, Sweet, Warm Grass, Thick, Umami
