5 Tasting Notes

Dry leaves are dark but lighter in colour after infusion, quite mild and smooth with nice grassy fragrance, a slight astringency in later infusions. Interesting tea that tastes more like an aged longjing (dragon well) than puerh.
I usually prefer aged puerh that are 10 years and above, but I like this (thanks Peter for the free sample). I will definitely start adding some sheng to my collection.

This matcha won numerous awards, suitable for both koicha and usucha. Taste is very smooth and buttery. This is one of my favourite matcha.

Lovely tea. Fresh and smooth, grassy with a hint of savoury aftertaste and lingering floral scent. Tea tasted more mellow and richer from the hohin.

This is my 2nd pack of tsukikage, and I use a higher temperature this time. The powder is quite dense so must use a matcha sieve or strainer to remove any tiny clumps. Good for both koicha and usucha. Colour is a nice green and smooth texture, taste is quite sharp with some sweetness, and a long after taste.
