Good umami with different notes

Enjoyed this tea alot. First brew is packed with a lot of umami, but also grassy flavor. Subsequent brews loose strength in umami, but the taste gets sweeter and shows different notes each brew, so its a nice experience. I was able to brew this tea up to 5-6 times with increasing temperature. Always been fun to do a session with this tea.

Nice mellow umami with sweetness and interesting complexity. Make sure to brew multiple infusions for different flavor profiles!

A pleasant and refreshing tea with no bitterness. However, I personally found Atsuko from the same producer to be more memorable.

What first struck me was its unusual fragrance. Taste is pretty fine too with almost no bitterness. The proportion of very tiny fragmented leaves to whole leaves was just a tad too much, easily resulting in a cloudy brew that made the texture a little too heavy and dense. Still an enjoyable tea though if more attention is given to the steeping time and water temperature during the brew
