Sipdown! (58 | 188)
The description for this one is a bit confusing, but it seems to be both deep-steamed and roasted? The steeped color also supports the roasted hypothesis, ha ha! There are also some stems included.
It came out a little bit bitter this time around, but I’ll just ignore that as I know it wasn’t that way previously. Probably just a dust-at-the-bottom-of-the-bag situation.
This is honestly really good. I like the combination of the vegetal richness and nori-like umami of the fukamushi sencha with the light toasty notes and pleasant nuttiness from the roasting. An unusual combination!
It’s definitely very satisfying and yet comforting. I can imagine this being great with food too!
