To start, the liquor of this tea is the most beautiful bright green. When it comes to the aroma, it’s quite grassy too. Very clean and purifying.
It also tastes on the grassier side. Probably the stongest Japanese green that I’ve had thus far, but granted, I haven’t had a whole lot.
Drinking this is an interesting experience because I’m so used to green teas like Genmaicha and Houjicha. Now, I do enjoy Sencha, but my palate isn’t quite accustomed to these rather grassier varieties of Japanese greens, but it is still refreshing.
Another interesting observation I have made about this tea is the appearance and feel of the steeped leaves. They’re so fine and mushy, and rather difficult to get out of my tea ball!
Overall, a fine tea but I can’t see myself purchasing this in the future. Another reason why the sample kit is a good idea.
