Thes du Japon's Tasting Notes
This kama-iri cha, made from the excellent Minami Sayaka cultivar native to Miyazaki, offers a sweet, warm, slightly fruity fragrance. With a touch of astringency in the mouth, this tea is powerful and attacks in a rather dry manner, with roasted chestnut aromas typical of kama-iri cha appearing slightly in the background. Next, faithful to the characteristics of this cultivar, after ten or twenty seconds, sweetness and a little umami begin to appear in the aftertaste, but above all very rich aromas of fruit, evoking peaches and yogurt. The flavours are delicious and remain in the mouth for a long time. The fruitiness appears more immediately and clearly in the following infusions, which are lighter but not astringent at all.
