The Leaf: Each curled leaf ranges from a deep dark green to a much lighter, almost pale green color. Only found one lose stem in the pile, but otherwise all leaf. The scent is light, sweet, and fruity.

The Brew: The aroma is clean, sweet, fresh, slightly grassy, and fruity. The liquor is extremely light green; almost clear or white looking. The taste is medium-light in intensity. There is a slight astringency, possible due to the high temperature water. The mouthfeel is somewhat thick while drinking, and there is a slight dryness left on the tongue. I taste fresh grass, mineral, and grape skin.

I drink all of my teas cold.

Flavors: Grapes, Grass, Mineral

I’ve been a tea drinker since I was a teenager, and have only gotten more addicted to tea as time goes on. I’m currently at a couple of liters a day.

I love all styles of tea, but as I currently live in Japan I’m checking out many of the teas available here; bancha, kukicha, and houjicha to name a few. I’m also a big fan of Assam tea, and almost all herbal teas including rooibos and mate.

My favorite way to brew tea is using a brew device from Taiwan that is marketed in the US under names like IngenuiTEA, and Perfect Teamaker. The device allows ample room for your leaves and makes cleanup quick and easy. I like the brewer so much I’m actually trying to market it in Japan.
