drank Yamacha by Dobra Tea
1125 tasting notes

A backlog, I had it in Dobra Cajovna (tearoom) in Pardubice yesterday . I needed something as energy boost, as I had night shift. I do inventory checks as part-time job. Not a dream job, but money is money.

Anyway to the tea. I ordered it as teapot version, so two brews. Unfortunately I have no idea about volume nor amount of tea. They brew it outside and then pour the liquor to the teapot. Nice solution so it would not overbrew and you can pour it to cup anytime.

Colour is most green I have seen in while. Really acid green colour. But liquor remains clear which is certainly a plus.

Ahh, at least I made little, but some notes:
Aromas were really wonderful, full bodied. I wrote down following – freshly cut grass, wet hay. Probably more, but as I said, it is a backlog, I have not written down much. Those scents apply for both brews, it remains rather same.

Now to flavours:
First brew it was really grassy with bit of umami. It was nice and easy to drink, no funky notes. Second brew was different: it went bit buttery, but still enjoyable. But aftertaste was amazing and I never encounter with it in green teas. It was like roasted nuts! That made my experience unique.

They wrote down it has got great stimulating effects and I have to agree. I have not closed my eyes to 3 am. Great for night shift.

Here is what they wrote in tea menu:
“Tea of the year 2009”. Mountain variety of Sencha from Hamamatsu region in Shizuoka province. Dark green flat leaves with same size, with strong grass aroma and incommutable taste. It has got remarkable stimulating effects.

Flavors: Butter, Freshly Cut Grass, Grass, Hay, Roasted Nuts, Umami

I am drinking almost everything. Tea bag collector who moved to wonderful world of loose leaf.

Trying to rate differently tea bags and loose leaf as tea bags have usually worse quality.

Buried in tea right now. Is in my cupboard (trying to be updated) which sparkled your interest? Write me, I would gladly share with you. But I don’t want anything in return now :)
