I am ruined for life. This tea. With all the wonderful teas I’ve received from the insider club, /this tea/ makes it all worth it. From the moment I unscrewed the tin, and took a whiff of its gloriously vegetal scent, I was in love. I didn’t even drink it at first. I absorbed it by scent alone.
There are some teas that don’t live up to its taste when experiencing its addictive scent, but this is not one of them. The taste blows me away. It’s warm and grassy, and it’s smooth. It’s what I imagine drinking tea right in the middle of the tea farm is like. It IS advertised as “one of the freshest teas you’ll ever taste,” and you can tell. It’s such a joy to experience that I had to share a bit with a fellow tea-loving friend, because I needed someone to gush over this with.
Congratulations, harishi sencha. You’ve set a standard for me that’s so high that all other senchas will be woefully disappointing.
