drank Shiraore Kabusecha by Chiki Tea
358 tasting notes

Decided to switch it up from the Sae Kabusecha that I’ve been obsessing over lately and only have a few sessions-worth left of. I used a little less leaf than I have previously and still got a lot of great flavor out of it. The thing that continues to surprise me about this tea is the creamy mouthfeel it leaves behind. I even feel a bit of a head rush after a few steeps, but this is my second tea of the day, so there’s probably some caffeine in my system from earlier.

This is a great option for sharing with people who are newer to Japanese teas, especially shaded teas. This is a great option for enjoying the flavor shaded tea has to offer without being overwhelmed.

Flavors: Kale, Pleasantly Sour, Umami, Vegetal

I don’t rate until I have had a tea several times unless it makes a very strong, immediate impact.
