Recent Tasting Notes
Hmm, I have received a sample quite long ago. But week or so ago I have received an e-mail from the company how I liked it. Honestly I have to say I forgot a bit about this one and I can not remember it much. So I took it once again (few last leaves) and writing this review.
If you are reading this Will – it is because of you! (No offence)
On small resealable bag (as just a sample) there is 60°, 1-1.5 min. I had to buy a thermometer as I don´t want to ruin tea like this one. So, first steep – 1.25 min, 58°C or something, 1 tea spoon, 250 ml mug, ball strainer. (I need a proper teaware)
Appearance: cloudy, light green, with lots of “dust” of tea, I guess my strainer mesh is not fine enough. So it looks bit like matcha on the bottom.
Aroma and taste: Honestly, very complex. Spinach, flowers, lots of Umami. Aromas are almost same, but add a freshly cut grass. It also smells like meadow.
Ahh, I think I love it! (Keeping 100 for something really extra)
Let´s make second brew now.Edit:
Second brew is very similar: Color is more vivid, so does tastes and aromas.
Flavors: Floral, Freshly Cut Grass, Hay, Spinach, Sweet, Umami
