oday seemed like a perfect day to enjoy some kōridashi (aka “ice brewing”), so I’ve got some tea all set up and steeping!! The wait is the hardest part, but when I’m finally able to enjoy my first sips of that silky smooth green tea with the pop of bright and citrusy yuzu top notes it will be well worth it!!

For my tea friends who more frequently brew kōridashi style tea, have you ever tried it with tea types other that green teas? I’ll be the first to admit this is a method of brewing I’m less well versed in, and I’ve really only ever seen it done with Japanese green teas. However, as most of y’all know, I don’t exactly drink a lot of those – so I’m just wondering before I go and get too experimental if anyone has had success trying a something else!!

EDIT: And, once all the ice had melted, it sure enough was a ultra refreshing and velvety smooth brew with that perfect sunny and complex yuzu citrus flavour. So good!

What I have noticed about Momo Tea’s flavoured sencha is that you can definitely still taste the earthy undertones of the sencha, and the flavourings that Momo adds to the tea are actually very mild!

When I first opened this, it reminded me of nail polish remover. Like an alcoholic, chemical scent. But I expected this to smell like bright and citrus. However, after it steeps, this alcoholic smell calms down and I was left with a pleasant light citrus note.

I have never had yuzu before; however, in this tea it tastes slightly like a cross between an orange and a lemon. But the prominant note in this tea is still the earthy, slightly bitter sencha.

Yuzu is an interesting one, to me it’s sort of like lemon and grapefruit. But it also tends to have a noticeable pine note to it!

That’s a great way of describing it! :)
