Kuki (stems) guyokuro. By ippodo
Dry stems: veggie like
Wet stems: intensified veggies
Light steep: I taste/smell; light veggies, asparagus, freshly cut grass , sweet and slight to light bitterness.
Medium steep: I taste/smell; medium veggies, fresh cut grass, asparagus and bitterness. Little to no sweetness.
Heavy steep: (skipped due to possible strong bitterness) sometimes i can stand bitter teas (can be pleasant) however, sometimes it’s unpleasant. i’m not going to risk it
All in all, this tea is nice but it’s not the best from japan that I’ve had. I rate 90 and suggest one try this tea with a bit of caution. (Possible bitterness)
Flavors: Asparagus, Bitter, Freshly Cut Grass, Sweet, Vegetables
