I’ve just received the 2019 shincha of this tea in the mail and started my first brew. The initial opening on the bag gave waves of a deep and rich grassiness, nearing on unami-ness, and smells plesently grassy. The first steep has a rich taste with little to no astringency, with a savory grassiness. Not much butteriness versus other shinchas I’ve had and not very sweet. Mouthfeel is full and thick.

1st steep, 30s, 170f
2nd steep, flash, 173f
3rd steep, 1min, 173f

Flavors: Grass, Green, Vegetal

170 °F / 76 °C 0 min, 30 sec 3 g 5 OZ / 150 ML
