2 Tasting Notes
The thing I like about this tea is that it’s so quick to prepare. Just take some hot water in the morning, mix it with the powdered tea and you’re ready for a long day at work/school. I also sometimes prepare it the night before and then drink it chilled the next day. Can also be prepared with cold water directly, but I think it dissolves better with hot water (of course), so I prefer this.
It’s also great for bringing to places where you don’t have a teapot available. It comes in a pretty little cylindrical box with a pretty design, and also comes with a tiny little plastic spoon.
I used to drink this 3-4 times a week for several months when I first discovered it. It’s the kind of bottled tea you drink, and before you know it, you’ve finished a whole bottle! Some days I ended up buying two bottles just for lunch, because it disappeared so fast.
It can’t compare to tea at home, of course, but it’s allright to pick up when you’re away from home and thirsty. It’s definitely one of my favourite bottled green teas in Japan, and possible to buy at almost every street corner from a beverage vending machine.
Slightly bitter taste, but try it along with a quick meal of (Tonkatsu) Curry Rice, and it’ll be great!
