Made a light salad and a cuppa from Obubu's summer Brightness Sencha. Brewed at 180F, blanched in cold water and then strained. Bit of sesame oil, furikake, and genmai.

Salad is soft and light, but too much sesame. Need some soy sauce instead I think.

The brewed liquor almost tastes like spinach, it lives up to its name. Bright, green, alive. I didn't brew too much of it, since I was hungry, but I've got a lot more to work through.

Today's evening is a pairing of Obubu's Tsubame Kukicha and some genmai (toasted rice). The tea is the stems and veins of summer harvest tencha, the "left overs" of the tea leaves that are used to make medium grade matcha. Low/no caffeine, sweet, vegetal.

In first flush @ 75C, the genmai powers through in the scent, but the taste is still sweet and fresh. The second flush @ 80C brings out more of the genmai but not at the cost of the kukicha. Darker liquor though.

Put him up on an action base. Trying to decide if I'll panel line or touch up the blue sections with some metallic blue gundam marker

Finished with the main suit of the HGUC Unicorn Perfectability kit I picked up from the Gundam Base Tokyo shop. It's a kitbash of Unicorn, Banshee, and Banshee Norn. Pretty fun.

Today's work is a simple spring pu-erh I picked up at Northwest Tea Festival in a Yixing clay pot. I lost track of how many steepings this pot has had. It's still so sweet.
