The Great Cupboard Excavation
Untasted teas remaining: 6

I have a big 100g packet of this that I got as a part of Yunomi’s subscription service. It was apparently a 2016 harvest, so it’s about two-and-a-half years old at this point. Oops.

Wow, it still has amazing flavor though! Very intense vegetal notes of spinach and asparagus alongside a nice grassy freshness. It’s smooth, with only a characteristic light bitterness at the end of the sip. It feels quite heavy, thick, and silken in the mouth, which makes it satisfying to sip while lounging on the couch. I’m almost reminded of a thick, healthful broth with lots of spinach added. There’s also a touch of creaminess that makes me think of edamame or lima beans.

There’s a great balance of sweet and savory with this one. I get a little burst of freshness in the aftertaste, and a flavor that reminds me of crisp apples or perhaps underripe plums, as well as a touch of astringency.

Very yummy! This is definitely not a lightweight Japanese green tea, but I love its strong yet balanced flavor. And it’s perfect to warm up with during the autumn & winter months!
