More about Umami
Umami or savory taste, is one of the five basic tastes (together with sweetness, sourness, bitterness, and saltiness). Naturally occurring in foods such as seaweed, soya sauce and fermented vegetables Artificially, it is called Magnesium sulfate glutamate (MSG). This flavour exists in this tea because of the location of the plantation which is close to the coast. The plant absorbs nutrients from the ground, which gives this tea its unique taste profile.
