drank Obukucha by Steepster
757 tasting notes

Second January Steepster tea of the day. Hopefully I can do it justice. I’m trying this one unsweetened to start with. Sometimes I can get away with that for really nice greens. I don’t have a lot of experience with Japanese greens like this but the last sencha I had, a cupping class at the JusTea headquarters, I really liked it and that obviously didn’t have sugar in it. Thankfully this experience won’t involve so much slurping.

This smells very much a very vegetal green. As soon as it cools down a bit, I’m looking forward to drinking.

First steep (1 minute), very very GREEN. All the things are muddled together and it isn’t as clear tasting as the sencha I had before. It tastes darker if that’s possible. Not sure what to make of it.

Will be edited if other infusions are different.
