Thanks Peacock! Do you have any other favorites that you have discovered?

70 degree celsius and 300 ml water, 10g tea leaves
The color is on the yellow side.
The taste is just so-so ( meaning not bad nor good ) and remind me of some nice Tieguanyin I've tried ( I don't like chinese tea ) .
A little umami flavour and also light profile as a whole.
Now I am not sure if I am going to try more asamushi, and I like gyokuro much more. Anyway, I still have an unopened Ippodo's Hosen sencha, so I will try it when I am done with Kaboku.
