I have to admit getting home to Victoria just in time for the second of the “Garden to Cup” series release was fantastic. The tea leaves smell refreshing and look so bright and green in their dry form. I can only imagine what it would be like to visit Shizuoka to see these leaves in person. This is the next best thing.
The flavor when brewed is smooth and very buttery to the taste buds. Yet the scent is very soothing to the spirits perfect for an evening stargaze. It is a worthwhile treat and priced just right for a fresh green tea such as this. Truly en par with the Gyokuro varieties that are available. Delish!
