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.

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 - Green tea


„Bancha (番茶, coarse tea) - Lower grade of Sencha harvested as a third- or fourth-flush tea between summer and autumn. Aki-Bancha (autumn Bancha) is not made from entire leaves, but from the trimmed unnecessary twigs of the tea plant.“

Quotes

„Smell:
Dry leaves: smell the leaves before you brew them. You can smell them before and after you put them in the heated gaiwan.
The gaibei's lid: lots of fragrant smells accumulate below the lid. Smell and you'll know when the tea is ready. You can also smell it after you pour the tea out.
The tea: interestingly, the brew doesn't smell as strong as the lid or the empty glass!“
