From Le Palais des Thes

Tamaryokucha is a Japanese green tea. The leaves are first steamed, then rolled in a heated drum.The leaves form small balls known as “tama” in Japanese, hence the name Tama ryokucha, whichmeans green tea. This differentiates it from traditional senchas, which have folded leaves. This teawas developed in the 1930s to try to break into the North African market and compete withGunpowder. Although this tea is found in other regions today, like Shizuoka, Tamaryokucha originatesfrom the island of Kyushu in southern Japan.

Aromatic profile and length in the mouth: very rich and complex, this tea gradually releases its aromas throughout the tasting. Smooth and sweet to start, making way for livelier, much more powerful aromas that are very well balanced

What a tea! I love Japanese greens. I have had a little trouble getting into them at first, and looking back on it, this is what I would recommend to people who say “I don’t like Japanese greens, they have too much of that iodine flavour!”
This is buttery, this is smooth. This is much less astringent than other Senchas. This just very well may be my new favourite green.

Flavors: Butter, Marine, Umami
