drank Yuzu Kukicha by Chado Tea House
14 tasting notes

I just got my massive tea order in from Chado Tea House and decided to try this one first. I got this tea as something different and interesting to drink.

First Impressions:
The packaging is very nice and traditional.The dry leaves smell extremely fresh and grassy (Mmmmm.) with subtle citrus notes. While steeping, the citrus is more pronounced but still smells relatively similar. I’m drinking this tea in a glass teacup and the colour is a very light yellow, very clear.

The first sip was very light and refreshing. The citrus is subtle but still very prevalent. I’m not a huge fan of citrus but this is pretty good. It tastes kind of like a mix of grapefruit/orange and a pinch of lemon (I’ve never actually had a yuzu before so I have no idea how it actually tastes). Overall, very light tea – great for refreshing summer days and afternoons. This would probably make a tasty iced tea.

Flavors: Citrus, Grapefruit, Grass, Lemon Zest, Orange

165 °F / 73 °C 3 min, 0 sec 2 tsp
