8 tasting notes

Sample received with my last order. The leafs are so beautiful, dark green (but I must confess I though of fresh cutted lawn at first look…)

Dry smell : Awesomely fresh and green, and I can even smell a touch of butter.
Once steeped, it keeps the same wonderful smell.

The taste : OMG! This is it! The same heavenly taste of my sushis restaurant’s tea. My water was to hot so it is a little bitter, but I’m sure the 2nd steep will be perfect. I had some japan green tea before, but cannot stand them (except the one at the sushi rest.), so I usually turning myself to chinese green tea. But this one… This one is THE thing! Probably the butter taste makes all the difference. I did not give it a perfect score only because this one is not organic…
