I love the color of this tea. Love it. From the side it just looks like a light yellow, but from the top it’s pale green. Think of the lightest shade of seafoam ever. I hardly even want to drink it because it just looks so pretty in my glass teacup.

The taste is mellow and honey-sweet. There’s just a bit of the vegetal taste I associate with green tea. This is the tea I normally offer to friends who flinch at even the smell of strong green tea (which is still shocking to me — who doesn’t like good, strong sencha?).

A friend once asked me, if I could have anything in the world, what would I want? I immediately answered, “Superpowers, specifically superspeed like the Flash.” He said that didn’t count because it wasn’t real, so my second choice was a cupboard full of every flavor of tea in existence. He promptly told me that that was a waste of a wish and said he would ask for the world’s biggest yacht.

But the more I think about it, the more I’m sure that I made the better choice. Slowly saving up money for higher quality teas is helping to convince me. Off I go to taste as many teas as I possibly can (and maybe dream about superpowers along the way).
