Has a nice, brisk sencha-like flavor with a very savory, somewhat creamy aftertaste. It really just tastes like a cross between a good quality sencha and a gyokuro. The pan-fired taste is fantastic.
Japan Tamaryokucha (717)
The muted green color indicates this is not your typical Japanese Green Tea. This specialty of Kyushu is pan-fired, rather than steamed, and hand-rolled in the traditional Chinese fashion. The result is a stunning mélange of flavors highlighted by briny grass, almonds and the tartness of berries. Five hundred years of tea tradition come alive in this golden yellow infusion.
