A rich, savory, brothy, and umami flavor makes this tea very unique. It's gentle and not too difficult to brew in terms of getting the right temperature/steep time. It seems incapable of producing any bitterness, but I agree with other reviewers who noticed a refreshingly clean and dry finish to this tea. Definitely the best karigane I've tried, which one would expect given the high grade and price of this tea.
