From The Tea Spot

Tasting Notes:
We’re proud to offer this delicate green tea with refreshing notes of orchid and lily of the valley. This unique spring tea hails from Kagoshima, the southernmost island of Japan. The cup is soft, smooth and very easy drinking with a sweet character and clean finish, making it a great introduction to Japanese green tea. Also known as Iccha Kariban, this new tea is versatile in preparation — amazing prepared hot, iced, and cold-brewed.

Now this is a tasting from an inexperienced tea drinker which why the flavors are so… vague. I’m starting to get the general sensations but not the very specific.

So I got this last week and brewed it and was very impressed, its mild, soft and sweet, with only a very slight astringent taste and no bitterness. There is also a strong floral scent to it, as well as a vegetal taste, but I cant point to a specific flower or vegetable yet to be more specific.

Now I watched a few videoes from Mei leaf and Tea DB and both of them recommended a quick brew in a gaiwan, under a minute for Sencha, which this is actually rather similiar to. . This is what I did, about 4g of leaf for a small gaiwan. This gave one of the best tasting Japanese teas I’ve had yet.

Ill be tasting this again a few more times and trying to update the flavors and scents to be more specific, but I highly recommend trying it.
