March 9th, 2017 - All in Good Taste
All in Good Taste was an educational and enjoyable experience where we learned a lot about the science behind the Five Tastes of Tea from TJ Williamson of Word Tea Podcast. Exceptional tastings of some interesting, unusual and rare teas and tisanes from Japan were provided by Yunomi Tea.
One experiment added a few drops of umeboshi plum vinegar pickled Sakura Flower infusion to a cup of Genmaicha which knocked out the umami and replaced it with perceptions of saltiness.
A few of the unusual teas sampled were: a rare folk Goishicha, a dark pu-erh like Batabatacha, and a black soy bean Kuromame.
