I have never had anything quite like this tea. It has this aquatic, hard to describe quality. It also has some very uplifting impact on my mood; this tea makes me happy.

Inguna!! So happy this makes you happy! When I first had the mao cha from this while at the pickers house, I became a bit obessesed with it. There is something in the energy of this tea that is dare I say, almost psychoactive, in a great way of course.

Interesting that so many others are describing the same things with it as you and I have discovered. I am going to work at doing a pressing of this tea each spring. Different years will have slight variations due to weather, of course, and I look forward to seeing what the years will bring to each aging cake!

p.s. – I just completed an 8 leaf blend that will contain leaves from other farms I visited there this past April. I could only get so much of the leaves but will have enough to have 150 of the 250 gram cakes pressed. It’s gonna be funky! Funky, in this musician’s opinion = tasty!

" …almost psychoactive, in a great way of course" – I would agree with that :)
