2/1/14 First tea of the month. 3.6g/100ml gaiwan/185F water. Washed. A nori scent in the dry leaves, a vegetal umami. I’m on the third steep of this now, up to 15 seconds. It’s brewing pleasant and light. Just a nice green tea – nothing extraordinary about it, nothing to be embarrassed by. A good session tea, to a borrow beer term.

Where this tea is made of win is the packaging. This is the most cutely packaged tea I have ever seen. This is tea I would buy just to own the tin. This is tea I probably am going to buy, international shipping and all, just so I can own a tin. I am enslaved by the kawaii.
