Recent Tasting Notes
I started off by steeping this per the instructions at 120 degrees for 1 minute. I was surprised by the very balanced umami flavor. There was a slight astringent finish and a bitter vegetal taste. Grassy. Fresh bitter herbs.
The second infusion was at 190 degrees for 5 seconds. It was much smoother, with less grassy flavor and more mellow.
This is a simple tea that is very easy to brew. The second and third steeps in particular produce a surprisingly complex and delicious brew with a long sweet aftertaste, and the leaves are quite fragrant at this point. Also, some senchas have an unpleasant tasting 4th or 5th steep. Not the case here.
