From GreenTea Japan

ICHIGO ICHIE is yet another of our highly prized green teas and heralds from Ei Town in the south of Kagoshima Japan. Ei is abound in endless green tea fields and boasts a climate plentiful in both sunshine and rain. It is here that ICHIGO ICHIE is grown and produced, bathing in the warm tropical sun and the optimal environment for creating truly delicious Sencha.
ICHIGO ICHIE is a totally unique Sencha cultivated from the “Yutaka Midori” tea plant which can only be grown in this sub-tropical area. Grown close to the sea side, this highly resilient tea plant produces a highly fragrant, well rounded and sophisticated Sencha; a taste that encapsulates the bountiful nature of the area in which it is grown.

I had never tried this company, but their teas looked nice, and so did their website.

I ordered their Yutaka Midori breed, named “Ichigo Ichie”. The tea shipped quickly and came wrapped in heavy green paper and Japanese calligraphy, and the tea itself is in a metallic based paper pouch (similar to many other Japanese tea vendors), only this one is resealable.

The tea is deep steamed, and has quite a few small pieces, but smells very fresh. I brewed 2g in ~3oz water at 170F for 30 seconds. The color is a nice greenish-yellow, and surprisingly little “dust” in the cup for being so deep steamed. The flavor is pretty strong and tastes a lot like hazelnuts, and has a hint of roasted flavor, with a little sweetness after.

I might have to try some of their Yame teas later, to see how they compare.
