Tea Review: Tea of Moonlight (Obubu)

Advent Tea Calendar Day 7

Tea of Moonlight
Obubu/京都おぶぶ茶苑
Type: Green
Origin: Japan, Wazuka
Product Description: Not Provided.

Temperature: 175° F
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 2 minutes

The dry leaves have an aroma of sweet, sun-warmed hay and seasoned wood.

The golden infusion has a woody wild-green aroma and flavor with a long, dry, green finish.

The mature leaves and stems of this aracha created a bold flavor and aroma with a pleasantly mild astringency that remained unweakened throughout three steepings.
