From TeaGschwendner

South of Shizuoka lies the picturesque Aichi Prefecture. This seaside region is blessed by a mild microclimate that is perfect for tea and consistently delivers “Twig Tea” is a specialty of the early spring made by meticulously processing leaf and stalk cuttings from Sencha production. Lightly creamy and nutty, this treat brews up a bright yellow-green, but does not have the vegetal boldness of its Sencha cousin. Low in caffeine and delicious on ice.

One heaping teaspoon per 8oz cup of filtered water, boiled and cooled for approximately 10 minutes to 70°C/158°F. Allow to brew 2 min.

Chuck Norris once got in a knife fight. The knife lost.

Smells kinda like the Dragon Well one did yesterday. Its bit more colored tho. Yellow to slightly greenish.
I’m expecting it to taste similar too cuz it looks very much alike with the only difference that this one has more stems and less leaves.
I was right. I like it maybe even bit more than Dragon Well. It’s the same taste with less sweetness. Very smooth and round taste. There is a hint of fresh grass in the taste. I like it. I really do.

Oh and yay i’m finally drinking some real teas!

This tastes bright and green. The first thought was creamy and buttery, but a light butteriness. Then the green less than heavy vegetal taste took over. Any interesting and unique tea for me.

On another note, my local TeaGschwendner is shutting down in a few weeks. Sad :-(
