Organic Sencha "7132" Asamushi from the O-C, their newest entry.
I was first struck by the dry leaf aroma, remarkably sweet for an asamushi, for an organic, for a Yabukita.
Brewed 1 gram leaf per ounce water, 158* in a preheated kyusu, 1.5 minutes.
As the water hit the leaves, I could not help but notice a sweet baked bread aroma, cinnamon, allspice. This was persistant for the first few steeps.
I am curious what a higher temp might bring out ... or an even cooler temp.
This is supposed to be Yabukita, I would not have guessed this as it has a more exotic profile than THE traditional Yabukita as I associate it.
