Recent Tasting Notes

Reminds me of the tea they serve in some of the restaurants we ate at in Japan. Mainly vegetal flavors with grassy hints in the aftertaste. Seems like it’s a very delicate leaf as there are many broken ones in the bag. I’m not going to put in a rating. Simply because its not a terrible tea but its also not one that will stick in my memory. Just a run of the mill flavor in my opinion.

Brewed at 75C for 30 sec. Very vegetal, grassy tea with a bit of astringency. A bit of sweetness too. I am feeling very sleepy this afternoon and brewed this one to try and wake me up but it doesn’t seem to be working. It was a pretty tasty cup.

Flavors: Astringent, Grass, Sweet, Vegetal

This was the first tea on the menu at Liquid Proust’s lovely backyard tasting. It was my first sincha, and while good, still had a slight atringency, a predominantly vegetal taste, with a sweetish aftertaste. Overall, somewhat nondescript green. I will reserve rating it for now.
