Teagschwendner Japan Tamaryokucha!
The leaves are a pretty, almost blue-green color. They smell like briny seaweed, but not in the way sencha can be marine. It’s a much sharper scent, almost salty! The brew is very light gold, contrary to my expectations. It tastes…interesting. I have no idea how to even describe it. It kinda changes while you drink it?? It tastes as marine and “umami”-ish as it smells, but there’s also a kind of almond-ness in the aftertaste. It’s a counterintuitive fusion, and it really permeates your mouth and stays there. It’s super interesting but not really for everyday drinking.
