The dry leaf smells so fantastic. I can’t quite place the smells but there is some brine, some grass, some sweet fruit. It’s intoxicating. It brews up a bright, vibrant green and the smell becomes more like buttered grass. I almost expected something like Yutaka Midori since the brewed smell is so similar but wow, it’s not. This is so buttery and creamy. The mouthfeel is deliciously silky, it’s quite fantastic. Then there’s a sharpish, fresh cut grass taste. Then there’s a fruity, almost honeydew rind aftertaste.

This is a difficult one to rate because I can’t help but compare it to the Yutaka Midori I just had. The YM is the epitome of the stereotypical sencha profile. This one though, is the buttercream-icing version of sencha. If I could only have one sencha in my pantry, I’d go for the YM since it’s so perfectly sencha. But the creaminess and mouthfeel of this tea just really blows me away.

Mmm, buttercream for breakfast. I hope they still have some next week. I spent this month’s tea budget already. orz

I’m trying to be a better tea logger and actually post semi-regularly again! I’ve let my tea tasting senses become too complacent – it’s time for some focused and attentive tea drinking!

Sometimes my notices for PMs and such have been questionable. Email me at your own risk at aug3zimm at gmail dot com.


1 – 10 – Bleck. Didn’t finish the cup.
11 – 25 – Drinkable. But don’t punish me by making me have it again.
26 – 40 – Meh. Most likely will see if the husband likes it iced.
41 – 60 – Okayish. Maybe one day I’ll kill off what I have in my pantry.
61 – 75 – Decent. I might pick some up if I needed tea.
76 – 85 – Nice. I’d probably buy but wouldn’t hunt it down.
86 – 100 – Yum! I will hunt down the vendor to get this tea!

Not that anyone but me particularly cares, but there it is.
