[Spring 2018 harvest]

I am still not a huge fan of yancha, but this tea is just so easy to enjoy! The complex aroma, comforting taste, thick and bubbly texture, and a strong, defocusing cha qi make up for a very rewarding drinking experience.

The aromas display notes of nectarines, fruit tree flowers, marzipan, coconut before the rinse and coffee, truffle, kumquat, sugarcane afterwards. At least, those are the ones that came to my mind – there is a lot to uncover here. Furthermore, the empty cup has a honeydew scent.

The taste is sweet, smooth and nectar-like with notes of resin, almond and coffee, turning into apricot, vanilla in the aftertaste which is a bit more savoury overall. The liquor has a soft and viscous texture and induces a cooling sensation in the throat in opposition to the strong body warming effect.

Flavors: Almond, Apricot, Citrus, Coconut, Coffee, Earth, Fruit Tree Flowers, Honey, Honeydew, Marzipan, Nectar, Resin, Stonefruit, Sugarcane, Sweet, Thick, Vanilla

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.
