I actually had this tea for the first time in the small town/village of Hita in Kyushu itself. The lady working at the tea vendor was very kind and let me drink a cup or so along with some sort of gelatinous Japanese tea snack. I’ll always associate this tea and maybe gyokuro teas in general with this experience from now on.
I couldn’t get enough so I bought enough to last me a long time back in America. It has a very nice typical gyokuro sweetness but it had a little bit of that sencha grassiness and bitterness in it as well. All around a great tea.
