My first impression when I took the brew to under my nose was a mellow buttery fragrance. Taking a first sip did indeed confirm that impression. It’s liquor is soft and pets the tongue as cream. It has a dominating sweet character with a slight sense of astringency that mainly remains in the mouth afterward. A little hint of sour can be found in the fragrance of the twigs. This first infusion depicts a revealing game of the liquor’s soft and sweet character in the mouth and a gradually increasing astringency and dryness in the mouth afterward.
It’s liquor is a fresh, light yellow-green as is suitable for a Karigane Sencha.
