A sweet green tea, not very grassy, closer in flavor to crisp, fresh vegetables. The company’s description is quite accurate. This tea is quite enjoyable. Second steep is pretty good, too.
The rare ‘Kuritawase’ variety is only grown on the southern island of Tanegashima, Japan. The sweet flavor of spring vegetables in the finish is a habit forming characteristic of this rare cultivar.
