Dark green, needle shaped tea leaves which turn into mushy small leaves after steeping. The Fragrance was sweetish vegetal.
The liquor was light cloudy with a vibrant yellowish green. Very rich in umami and amami and smooth like a good Gyokuro. It would be a waste not to enjoy it like a Gyokuro. So my steeping instructions were: 5g per 80ml water, at 60-75°C for 10sec-2min, 4 Infusions were possible
