Tea Review: Homemade Lemongrass and Kamairicha Herb Tea (Yunomi/Kajihara Tea Garden)

Homemade Lemongrass and Kamairicha Herb Tea
Yunomi/Kajihara Tea Garden
Type: Flavored Green
Origin: Japan, Kumamoto Prefecture, Ashikita
Product Description:
A unique herbal blend of Kajihara-san's home made refreshing lemongrass and the umami of our kamairicha.

Since it can also be enjoyed cold, this homemade herbal tea is popular year round! A wonderful tea to have amongst your selection of teas.
Temperature: 194° F
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 1 minute

The dry leaf blend includes lemongrass and green tea.

The aroma of the light yellow infusion is rich and savory with notes of butter and lemongrass.  The mellow citrus-like notes of lemongrass make up most of the flavor with hints of green tea in the back and no astringency.

For the purpose of this review I followed the instructions on the package, brewing for 1 minute with 194° F water.  While the first two infusions were slightly savory, the third infusion was notably sweet with a greener liquor color.  It was nice to try something a little different and the results were absolutely lovely and refreshing if you enjoy lemongrass as much as I do.

This tea was purchased by me.
