KittyLovesTea sent me this tea in a swap a while ago and while I had had it before, this is the first time I am doing it with patience and a computer nearby.

Not that I got much to say, this is lovely and making me realize how little I know of japanese tea and that i really should get to know it better (but please no seaweed notes, please, no. I fear the sea notes). This is a very smooth but somehow strong japanese tea, that grassy-vegetal note and is just what i was craving.

Must explore more japanese teas.

And thanks kitty, am enjoying this very much!

I offered a Japanese tea to a friend of my mine with sea notes (even salt notes !) and she just cannot physically drink it – she becomes sick !

Sea notes, very very complicated for me. I had excellent japanese tea, though the best japanese tea I have been brewed by japanese people. But a lot of japanese teas, ouch, scary.

Inconstant tea drinker – I mostly drink tea when not too hot. I hang around steepster much more frequently in (northern hemisphere) cold season.

- Teas -

I like all sorts of tea, flavoured and unflavoured, though I am picky. I am always willing to try anything new. I am now particularly interested in single origins.

I am one of those people who actually loves Lapsang Souchong. I am not crazy about Earl Grey, in general. I don´t quite get Darjeeling teas, but I am trying to make sure …

I like rooibos, though not all bases. I loathe hibiscus. I do not like fennel/liquorice/anise in blends or teas with chicory. I am picky about what I consider true cinnamon.

As you can probably tell from my cupboard, the brands I find more interesting right now are Mariage Fréres,Thé-o-Dor and Yumchaa.
