73 Rating: Mild flavor, warm almost oaky tones. When brewed, the tea is not bright green, it is more beige/ yellow with slight green. A little boring at first, but it is growing on me. This tea has some nice overtones, that are woody oaky yet not too bitter. Very slight bitter aftertaste if overstepped. Reasonable price +- 6.50 US dollar for 3.5 oz

Bio

I am an Architect, Planner, Educator by profession… 

My immersion into the rich world of tea began with brewing Kombucha which uses camilla sinensis tea. A conversation of the health benefits of green tea versus black lead me to look deeper. Since I can remember, I have been an advocate of alternative and naturopathic health and so am drawn to loose green teas from Japan at the moment because of their high catechin content and low oxidation. My love of tea has managed to engage and inspire me to know more about farming, geology, processing, chemistry, biology, history, economics, artisanal tea ware, trade routes and of course the endless subtleties of aroma and taste.
