A very friendly and enjoyable tea, lots of sweetness that reminds me of gyokuro but much more forgiving to brew. I like to make this one with boiling water to bring out the intensity of color and flavor, and it doesn’t add any bitterness at all. The flavor is straightforward grass and fresh vegetables, without any umami or saline notes.
Happy holidays all, I hope you have good tidings and good tea!

That sounds really tasty after a month of heavy flavorings and spices (and Italian cream cake and homemade toffee and…)

I love stem teas, they always have such a pleasant sweetness to them! And happy holidays!

I’ve been drinking tea as a hobby for a few years, thought I should finally start leaving reviews. I’m most fond of teas on the darker end – black/red, roasted oolong, ripe puerh. I’m no good at translating a review into a numerical rating, so I usually don’t give one.
