The Yakushima Yabukita is a very well balanced tea with a nice sweetness and soft umami. It also has a light cereal and sweet corn note. As is typical with a Yabukita tea, it has a slight citrusy note to it but it is very soft. The tea is full bodied and dense with a very decent cashew nut note.
Tea gets fresher in the second brewing. A bit more of these citrusy and astringent flavors begin to show. Tea drifts more into these greener and more vegetal notes, but still maintains a nice nutty note of cashew. The tea is definitely much fresher and citrusy in the second brewing.
