This tea is really nice. I was a little weary of organic teas, as I heard they could be less flavorful, but this one definitely isn’t! First infusion is a nice yellow-green, with a sharp but sweet taste. Second infusion is cloudy, soupy and umami-packed, as it should be. The price is also cheaper than some other teas, while still having all the flavor.

The tea was packaged in the usual type of bag, however it seemed to be vacuum packed, as it was air tight and you could feel the tea packed together inside. On the packaging is a drawing of what I assume is the owner of the tea farm, along with her son. It’s nice to see the faces of the people who dedicated their time to making your tea.

Oh no, no, no, no no! I personally believe that organic teas (well organic anything really) is SO much flavorful. Infact, I’ve never heard anyone say organic things are less flavorful.

I have heard the exact opposite actually, that organic (japanese) teas are less flavorful. I wouldn’t know from experience, but certainly are conflicting opinions out there.

Really wow? The only two organic Japanese teas I’ve had are sencha and matcha- and I’ve foud them to be much more flavorful- especially matcha. And to plug LeafSpa today, they’ve got a great organic ceremonial grade matcha!:)

Oh, I don’t doubt your experience in the least. Just pointing out I’ve only read the other side (that organic = sacrifice of flavor) on the internet. However, having never tried organic, this makes me want to compare and see for myself!

Now decaf on the other hand…

Shinochiba (and Martin Biship) you guys should try the steepster select item for today too- It’s organic and I deem it 100 worthy!:)
