From American Tea Room

This mountain-grown Japanese green tea is a fantastical interplay of subtle flavors and aromas that’s sure to delight any foodie. The forest-green leaves give off ripe scents of mango, orchid and magnolia. The electric chartreuse brew has a bouquet of steamed asparagus with a drop of lemon juice and rich umami flavors of roasted artichoke and young extra virgin olive oil. A light mouthfeel is contrasted by an unexpected sweetness of grilled-in-the-husk, heavily buttered yellow corn. A delicate finish of clove astringency and sakura blossoms multiplies the depth and complexity of this enchanting brew. The pairing capabilities are endless, and are one of the many factors that place Honyama Sencha amongst our best sellers.

The leaves are a brilliant green color. They are slim and long and delicate. I get a freshness in the pre-brew aroma. It’s slightly sweetly scented in a natural way. I really didn’t want a cup of veggie soup today, so I went low on the temp and slightly longer on the steep time. 160/1.5 min. Superb! It did the trick. I am notorious for incorrectly preparing my green teas, but I love them, so I keep trying. It worked this time. The aroma is now a fresh, leaf-like scent. The taste is very lightly sweet, more floral, but most certainly not overwhelmingly floral. I’m not getting any butter flavor, just nice, clean, delicious flavors. It’s slightly grassy, but that’s what I love in a green tea. No bitterness. This is my green tea.

its my go to green as well. This was a winter plucking so its a little less buttery and slightly more brisk. I can drink this all day long (and I do)
