From Dobra Tea

From the mystical tea lands in Uji, this Certified Organic tea is hand processed in small batches during the spring and summer months. Weeding of the tea bushes and composting is all done by hand in Mr. Nagatani’s tea garden. He has chosen to use fish cakes as a method of composting. This gives this shade grown variety an unseen, deep fishy flavor, thick and oceanic!

Well, this tea is certainly past its normal time frame, so I was pleasantly surprised by its bold sea-green flavor. The tea was vacuum-sealed until recently and is still sealed with a desiccant package, so I’m certain that helped. A gentle taste of salt water and nori seaweed mixed with the taste of fresh cut grass after a rain. There’s no aroma to speak of, wet or dry, and its prior rich body is long gone, but still a pleasant cup for a spring afternoon.

I still have some old Nagatani Gyokuro from last year. I have been eyeing it the last couple of days. Think it’s time to drink it. Or, gasp, make a chilled tea with it!
