Sencha of the Autumn Moon

Style: Sencha – Region: Kyoto, Japan
Jan. 12th, 2015

The aroma of the fairly massive leaves is very green, a mix of edamame, spinach, and a bit of hay and grass. It is not the most complex Sencha I have ever sniffed, but the aroma is strong and a good blend of sweet and green, I enjoy it and can certainly see this being an excellent tea to sniff while focusing on the moo...

Houjicha Amber Roast

Style: Hojicha – Region: Kyoto, Japan
Dec. 1st, 2014

The aroma of this Houjicha is fun, it starts off as sweet roasted marshmallows and a touch of campfire, it then transitions to toasted sesame, burnt grass, and lastly a tiny wisp of distant sea air.

The taste richly roasted and faintly smoked that fades to a sweet aftertaste. This tea tastes like au...

Kyobancha

Style: Kyobancha – Region: Kyoto, Japan
Nov. 27th, 2013

The aroma is delightfully loamy and mildly roasted, it reminds me of the forest at the end of autumn. Brewing the tea makes the roasted aroma and loamy aroma more intense and it brings in notes of umami as well.

The taste is earthy, loamy, and a hint of woody with very mild roasted flavor. I have to be careful to n...
