How strong did you brew these? How many grams of leaf per ounce (or ml) of water?
Oh I simply forgot this. I take half the sample (so ~3,8g) with 90-100ml of water.
The second duel - did it last week but still owe my results.F2 Fuji Super Premium from Zencha
very small bits of leaves
1st intense already - I wondered of the power it had.
2nd was very green and had a nice strong taste with sweet aftertaste.
3rd had strong umami.
4th getting lighter in colour, but still this intense smell. Very solid and rounded taste.
5th, 6th and 7th getting weak but still drinkable and nice.A2 Hachiju-hachiya from Maiko
The leaves are beautiful; very big and dark green needles.
1st is pale and very light. Rounded with a hint of sweetness.
2nd is as the first one but getting intense.
3rd as the second one. Some umami.
4th getting lighter.
5th and 6th very weak and still sweet.
This Fuka had some taste - wow. Not as beautiful as the Asa, but strong and held its power. The Asamushi was nice too. I really liked both and would call it a draw.
