From TeaGschwendner

The muted green color indicates this is not your typical Japanese Green Tea. This specialty of Kyushu is pan-fired, rather than steamed, and hand-rolled in the traditional Chinese fashion. The result is a stunning mélange of flavors highlighted by briny grass, almonds and the tartness of berries. Five hundred years of tea tradition come alive in this golden yellow infusion.

This Japanese green tea is pleasantly grassy with creamy, medium weight body that lightly lingers on the top of the palate (cf. umami). Alongside this briny grass-like flavor comes a nuttiness resembling almonds. Adding more complexity to this cup, there is light cut on the back end that is reminiscent of a mellowed, bitter orange citrus (similar to the peel, but not as harsh). Complex in flavor, but simple in it’s description, this tea provides a very good warm cup on a cold day that can help intensify the mind’s introspection and, like any tea, the calmness to approach what you discover (paraphrased from Jason Witt).

Do you mean umami?


Yes, thank you for noting that. :)
