I’m a little biased… this is probably my most favorite tea in the whole world and I never knew what it was until 2 weeks ago.

Basically, I always wondered why tea at the Japanese restaurants I frequent was so delicious and rice-y (is that a word? It is now.), but my green tea at home was, well.. bitter and green! I wanted the rice! But where, why, how?! D:

Thank you Steepster, because that is how I came across my favorite tea and bought it the very next day. I have it pretty much every morning at work. It’s tastes wonderful and perfect every time – needs no sweetener of course, that might ruin it in my opinion.

Anyways! For anyone who is a fan of the tea at your favorite Japanese restaurant, do yourself a favor and pick up this tea.

Daisy, how are you preparing this? I’ve been fiddling around with amount of leaf and steep times and I haven’t found the ideal yet. Sounds like you have.

Bio

You can call me Daisy.

I’m a 24 year old (not so budding) thespian – just moved to the Maritimes from the Saskatchewan Prairies. I’m way too polite, aka Proud to be a Canadian. I love it here by the water – it must remind me of tea or something ;)

My favourite tea companies are DavidsTea and Verdant Tea. They please my palette in different ways – and I love them both for it.

My rating system is as follows:
95-100: I will stock it as soon as I can, if I haven’t already! Permanent collection worthy.

86-95: I would stock this tea if I could, but my collection is just too full to warrant it. But it is that good.

76-85: This is a tasty tea and I will have many cups and share with friends, but won’t go out of my way to keep it stocked.

50-75: It was alright! It was… alright! Not horrible, but I might not re-steep.

25-50: Ew. But I will finish the cup.

1-25: Please no, I want to dump it.


The Steepster community is my safe place. Thank you to all my tea friends!
