Beautiful rich dark green leaves when dry. Changes to medium green spinach-looking leaves when steeped.

The infusion is a light but very green colour, rather than the yellow green we normally see with senchas and Chinese green teas.

Flavour reminds me of sweet grass, with only a hint of dryness at the end. Very refreshing yet still warming in this weather. I would like to try it cold brewed as well in the summer – wonder how that would taste.

This was a sample but definitely putting this on my want list.

Flavors: Spinach, Sweet, Warm Grass, Vegetables

finding myself in hot water again and again…

I grew up in a tea drinking culture, but my parents were seriously hung up on jasmine tea and oolong tea, so I never really had much exposure to other teas. My horizons expanded when I moved to Japan and discovered genmaicha (roasted rice tea aka popcorn tea). after that, I discovered black teas, red teas, and flavoured teas, how different teas could be by the region, processing methods, water used.

Now I can’t get enough of it!

I experiment with different teas, blending them sometimes to see what the outcome would be. I find my tastes to be quite diverse, but run away from the more floral side of things. Tie Kwan Yin is probably the only one that most people seem to enjoy, that I don’t. Otherwise I am game for most teas. Fruity? love it. Smoky? Mmm. Earthy? bring it on! Light and vegetal? keep pouring!
