This isn’t really the most typical Japanese green out there. I purchased this tea some time ago at local gastronomy festival, because I knew the seller and had just good experiences with their teas before. The packaging is very beautiful, but it seems like it always is with Japanese tea. Japanese simply know that great things should have great wrapping.
Color of the infusion is yellowish-green, actually much more yellow than in most Japanese teas. I owe this to be result of non-typical processing, which resembles Chinese green teas more than Japanese.
The taste and smell is very gentle and sort of sophisticated, with no disturbing tones. There is nothing extra special – meant both positively and negatively. It isn’t the best green tea ever – but it doesn’t even try to be.
Thanks to it’s sympathetic price (5,58 € for 50 grams, which is not much at all, at least for good Japanese tea), it’s quite affordable, thus making it a good everyday tea.
