A little of everything

On the first steeping, the tea has a pronounced umami, even stronger if brewed with a higher leaf-to-water ratio. This (for me) is tasted on the roof and back of the mouth and gives way to floral and green notes on the tongue. The second steeping is more herbaceous and the less perceptible. On a third brewing everything fades a bit more. The texture is very full-bodied on first brewing, more astringent on the second, with a fine green particle clouding the liquid. "Clover" is spot on—and after a taste of the second steeping, flower and grass will linger on the palate for several minutes. A complex, varied and celebratory taste experience. Thank you, farmer!
