The flavor was rather muted, but the fascinating aroma makes this tea worth a try.
This kamairicha is very special. It’s flavor and aroma are intense, rich, yet balanced. Brewing of the tea yields a beautifully pale green, smoky, and uplifting sensation worthy of any morning ritual. Perhaps untraditional in its approach, this micro-oxidized kamairicha absolutely delivers the familiar sweet umami that Japanese green teas are known for, to boot. If it’s in stock, BUY IT... you will not regret it.
This truly is amazing tasting - the umami is just and good as the description said! Thank you for producing this tea.
