part of my “In search of fuka” …
Tea Notes> Green Tea> Sencha (for more)
Dry leaf: green sencha, not all broken (as fuka is said to be, during manufacture), see pics, some leaf is quite long. (i’ve been drinking slowly out of this for at least a month) /Opening the bag in the first weeks i got a strong fresh delicious sencha, was like wow! (thats what you get ordering straight from Japan, and good vendors = yum.)
#1 70C 2min
Flavor: good flavor, quite strong tho not in your face, good body, medium vegetal, some “spinach” (what i used to call “egg”. yah, i know, but hey, eh, oh well, getting there.), good aftertaste with tannin coating mouth, not harsh, some sweetness already!
#2 reinfusion ~60C 2min
Flavor: hmmm, some watery, low flavor, possibly extracted most in #1, tannins in mouth are more aparent, tho not bitter or harsh.
#1 70C 1 min
Flavor: oh yum strong ass fuka! sencha sencha high (well also from the heat of the liquor makes me a little happy/agitated). sweet on the tongue, vegetal… gentle strongness… after coming down from the high, maybe the flavor strength is still medium. good lasting sweet aftertaste.
#2 60c 3 min
Flavor: now there’s some overinfusion here, tinge of strong tannin a bit harsh, not bitter.
Overall: very good (especially when fresh).
