78 tasting notes

I understeeped this last time and didn’t really like it, but I tried it again today and I think it’s interesting. It’s lighter than I expected, not really delicate but not heavy, and a little astringent but not overpoweringly so. Also, it doesn’t really taste like nori, which is a first for me with Japanese greens! It’s vegetal and a little bitter, but not bad at all. Kind of a nice backup Japanese green to have around, I think, and I’m glad I bought it.

MJ is 24, plays with arts and crafts and words and meanings, and prefers a side of tea with her lovely rainy days.

I’m a big fan of Japanese greens and of flavored black teas. I will pretty much automatically love anything with popcorn in it, despite not liking actual popcorn, and I’m not a huge fan of chai or jasmine.

I’m really fond of seasonal teas, so I’m likely to give something a try if it’s specifically for spring or fall or what have you.

Shout-out to Zen Tea for keeping me sane and being delicious.
