Kuri mushiyokan with Kumpu Sencha
Kumpu Sencha properly prepared with boiled water that has been slightly cooled is very smooth, with a full umami flavor. It also has a pleasantly sweet aftertaste that harmonizes wonderfully with the steamed chestnuts in kuri mushiyokan. You know it’s autumn in Japan when you see sweets made with chestnuts in store windows.
Brewing too long will make the tea astringent.
