Tea Tasting No. 9

img_3959

Tea type: green tea

Tea name: Kukicha

Origin: Japan

Harvest: 2016

Bought: through Tomotcha monthly tea subscription 

Impression: this tea has a very smooth taste which I can best describe as freshly baked cookies coming out of the oven. This is really the association I had when I had my first sip. The tea is stronger in flavor than a sencha tea and does contain a slightly stronger astringency. I can recommend up to three steepings, although the first two are the best ones. Water should be around 60-70 C, not higher.
