I went to Zen Tea to have a tea flight, and I started with this. It’s like gyokuro meets kukicha, and it’s pretty tasty!

I of course at the time accidentally said it was like houjicha, but I meant kukicha. It’s doesn’t taste truly like a gyokuro, it has a bit of grassiness but then it’s a little roasty, it’s very different.

It seemed like a combination of Japanese and Chinese greens in a sense. A bit more subtle, a bit vegetal, and a bit roasted.

I didn’t even know this type of tea existed, and I’m glad I tried it.

Also operation leave Sebastian and see if he eats or even moves was a failure. I had to feed him with a lid again, and then use one of my gaiwan cups to give him water. And you have NO IDEA how cute that was.


This tea sounds really interesting. They do tea flights at one of my local tea shop, but I’ve never done them because they also do unlimited refills which I found a bit more valuable ;)

Awww, poor Sebastian. I hope he settles in soon. Birds can be so sensitive. He sounds like a little cutie though.

Mild, sweet. I would like a little more body in my teas.
