Delicious Japanese tea for a good price

5 stars 4.5 This review helped: 0 / 0

Dry leaves smell fresh. After placing dry leaves into the warm gaiwan it greatly expands their fresh grass scent. Steep with water, in which you can keep your finger submerged for more than 3 seconds - a nice advice :-) Infusion is a clear, light green. The taste is really delicious, sweet and grassy. It leaves a pleasant grassy aftertaste with very little marzipan bitterness. Three infusions provide excellent tea. I bought this tea with 30% discount for 8.90 EUR. Very good tea, I highly recommend it.

Gaiwan 140ml, 3g of tea, steeped with water, in which you can keep your finger submerged for more than 3 seconds – 1,5 mins / 2 mins / 2,5 mins

The leaves are nice, dark green, sometimes even brighter with pleasant scent. The first infusion is clear; color is pale green, grassy flavor with a pleasant, slightly bitter and long lasting finish. Further infusions are more yellow and slightly cloudy. I managed to prepare three delicious infusions; the second one was the tastiest. Very good tea. I look forward to the next time :-)

Kabuse means semi-shade grown. This is the special process when the tea bushes have been sheltered from direct sun by bamboo screens. This will increase the amount of chlorophyll in the leaves before harvest. Tea has a stronger flavor then.

Quotes

„Mr. Gao showed us how to identify gu shu (ancient tree) tea leaves by looking at their texture, rubbing them between your fingers, and eating them raw. Old tea trees produce thicker, more leathery leaves that don’t easily come apart when you rub them. And gu shu buds should be white & shiny. When you chew them, the flavor is very bitter but there is also a strong sweet fragrance, and the juice is relatively easy to swallow. Tai di cha (terrace plantation tea) is also bitter but with a strong, lasting astringency on the sides & front of the tongue, and the juice is harder to swallow.“
