The dry loose leaves for this tea are wonderful to look at. Some leaves are forest green, others appear nearly white and there are some kind of seed looking things mixed in as well.

The dry aroma is grassy with notes of spinach and what I think are hints of squash. Once brewed the liquor becomes a very nice light yellow-gold. The aroma remains grassy, but sweetens a bit.

There’s some palate pleasing dryness to this tea, though the palate and tongue don’t dry out. A grassy and vegetal freshness come out in the flavor profile. This tea reminds me of a shade grown Fukamushi style sencha from Japan. It’s flavors of spinach and arugula lighten the grassy bitterness.

I would recommend this tea to fans of senchas and other Japanese green teas.

Insane about tea and technology!

Born in Maryland in a suburb of D.C. humorously named “Chevy Chase” I moved to Cincinnati as a… wait… you don’t want to read this crap!

My tea birth came in 2004. While I had been drinking tea throughout my life it was more of a seasonal enjoyment and not something as empassioned as what it gives me now.

I’m currently working to start a couple tea related businesses and run a little tea blog reviewing tea and tea related items.

You should drop by! Seriously! The door’s open!
