Two Leaves Tea

I’m pretty sure that I rated this tea before, so this must be another case of a multi-profiled tea… Anyway, as I am currently in the midst of a travel-imposed loose tea hiatus, this sachet of Organic Tamayokucha is tasting mighty fine. True, it’s my first Japanese tea in at least two weeks, so my judgment may be skewed by deprivation.

The flavor seems to me half-way between a succulent China green and a Japanese green. Definitely neither a sencha flavor nor a bancha flavor! It’s even reminding me a tad of my limited Indonesian green tea experience. I have a couple more of these sachets, which came in the sampler box from Two Leaves. It’s a somewhat odd concept for a sampler box: three different teas, this Tamayokucha, an Assam, and a bedtime valerian-chamomile blend. I find it odd because Two Leaves has many other varieties of teas to be sampled!

On a tangentially related note: I am no longer a fan of cellophane-wrapped sachets (which is why I am using all of mine up on this trip). The last straw was when the scent of my Mighty Leaf mint tea ended up infusing into all of the other cellophane-wrapped teas with which it was stored!
