This is really hitting the spot today. A yummy sweet green broth like infusion…
upped the rating just a tad.

It is lighter than Sencha, and I still got three quality steeps each time from the Fukamushi I had (from Hibiki-an).

Mine looks like it has twigs in it, did yours?

TeaBrat

Ah, karigane is stem tea, I just looked it up…. :)

ScottTeaMan

I don’t think mine was karigane. Look here:

I also bought mine a couple years ago, so I’m not sure if it was blended with Gyokuro, like this years crop. I don’t think it was.

ScottTeaMan

It also was $4 cheaper when I bought it, but it’s still really worth it. I mean c’mon, tea directly from the tea fields of Japan to my house! :))

Profile

Bio

My profile pic is of a pink dahlia at Golden Gate Park.

Hobbies include: tea, making art, animals, vegan things, buddhism, nature, creativity, books, writing, cooking, meditation, yoga.

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it

59-50 Ick

49 and below Nasty
