FYI: Den's 2015 Shincha Kunpu Tasting Comments:
When I opened the bag, I was so glad to smell a seaweed like aroma that reminded me of a great quality tea. Then I tasted a cup and the cup woke my palate up. This year's Kunpu brings strong and dry flavors. In the beginning, I felt a very dry fresh bitterness left in my mouth. Then that bitterness gradually turned to an Umami flavor with very slight astringency left behind. It was a unique profile that I've never had, but I was quite ready to taste it again and again. By the end of the first cup, my mouth was a full of herbaceous flavor. The second cup still kept giving strong and dry flavors. I found 2015 Shincha Kunpu has a unique bitterness that enhances Umami and a long lasting aftertaste. You will enjoy the transition of wonderful flavors in your mouth.
