[Spring 2019 harvest]

This tea is quite perfumy with an aroma of cherry wood. The taste has a lot of underlying bitterness, as well as a strong mineral presence that makes is quite savoury, almost salty. There is also a kind of vegetal note and a sweet finish with a very strong aftertaste subsequently.

The liquor has quite a presence. The mouthfeel is at first silky, then mineral and astringent, almost tannic. The finish is somewhat cooling with an expansive fragrance.

Flavors: Ash, Astringent, Bitter, Cherry Wood, Coffee, Mineral, Perfume, Salty, Sweet, Vegetal

I had been drinking Japanese green tea for a while before discovering the world of tea in 2017. I rarely drink blends and generally avoid artificially scented teas. Other than that I try to keep it varied.
