drank Shimizu-En Kukicha by Hisabo
4843 tasting notes


As I explained in my full-length review of this tea: http://sororiteasisters.com/2014/09/17/shimizu-en-kukicha-tea-from-hisabo-tea/ Hisabo is a tea company that operates a little differently from other online tea shops. They don’t actually operate an e-commerce type of site with a shopping cart or the like, instead, when they have a tea to offer, they send out emails to those on their mailing list and tell you what’s available, and it’s only available for a very limited time. (I don’t think that this Shimizu-En Kukicha is available any longer!)

This is a lovely green Kukicha. It has a light and refreshing flavor, and a very tasty, nutty flavor. I enjoyed more of this the other night, and I found myself wanting to just curl up with it – I love that warm nutty flavor. It’s so soothing and comforting.

it resteeps well too.

An excellent quality Kukicha. I highly recommend signing up for their mailing list.


Cool! I signed up.

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.


The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:


I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.


My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
