drank Sencha Karigane by Hibiki-an
66 tasting notes

excellent tea.
low caffeine level.
lighter, yellowish color compared to the bright green of sencha.

Fresh, vibrant dry leaf, as usual with hibiki-an.

I used fairly precise temperature, leaf weight, water volume and steep time during this sessions, using thermometer, timer and scale.

First infusion minral-umami, sweetness and a touch of pleasant bitterness, very thick ‘soupish’ tea liqud.

second infusion onwards: thinner than first. a faint almost tart floral fruity aroma detectable on exhale after sip.

180 °F / 82 °C 1 min, 0 sec 7 g 6 OZ / 190 ML

“Drink your tea slowly and reverently, as if it is the axis on which the world earth revolves – slowly, evenly, without rushing toward the future.” ~ Thích Nhất Hạnh
