When you open the package to Den’s green tea and you smell the seaweed scent, you know that that’s what a Japanese green should smell like. I’m so happy my order came today; I’ve been dying to have more of this tea. I tried to brew this in my yixing, but realized that was stupid after all the little bits of tea got caught in the holes of the pot and clogged it up. So, I switched to my ceramic pot.

Anyway, the tea is tasty and delicious. It is a bit astringent, so sip with a little caution until you figure out how it works. Very tasty and seaweed-y though. Just what I love in a Japanese green.

I’m a third-year senior studying linguistics and horticulture. In my free time, I like to enjoy a cup of tea with my friends. I’ve always loved tea, but now I’m starting to appreciate the culture. My favorite teas so far are oolong, white, green and rooibos.
