I would say that the Shizuoka offering is more veggie while the Kagoshima offering is sweeter. Both really good but different!
Sounds good! I have a bag of O-Cha's Kagoshima Sae Midori here just waiting to be opened.
I have brewed this a couple of times now. I have not quite nailed it yet.
Sae Midori fukamushi has always been a little difficult for me to get just right.
Chip, would you mind sharing your exact brewing parameters, not just ratio but exact grams and ml/fl oz.?
I have noticed in the past that some teas seem to require a certain minimum amount of leaf to be good; i.e. a tea brewed at 1:1 with only 1 g wouldn't work, whereas 1:1 with 3 g it would turn out fine. Have any of you noticed the same?
