This is a tea with a very long-lingering aftertaste. It is a very lightly smoky, very very earthy tea. Like a scoop of wet earth and stone in a cup. There’s something I can’t place in the aroma and flavour; it is the key feature that stands out and yet I can’t place it — it’s not merely vegetal but something exceedingly so. It isn’t grassy but tastes of dirt. In the nicest possible way.

Lovely fragrant sweet tea, which re-infuses well (some teas don’t to my taste).

I was disappointed with this tea -it wasn’t to my taste at all. It reminded me of Genma cha with that pop-corn/ricey taste.

I love this tea, when brewed correctly it has a strong fruity taste with a slight astringency, but it has to be brewed correctly or the latter takes over, which can make it a little tricky, but well worth it.

Was totally craving this this afternoon. Had to have two pots (small ones). Rich and just yummy. Feel much refreshed now.

This tea was kindly sent to me by Tony from High Teas in London. I don’t have a huge amount left. It’s rich and pleasantly astringent, a great accompaniment for sweet things as well. No need to add milk or sugar to this one that’s for sure, it’s perfect just as it is.
