This is my favorite green tea and I haven’t reviewed it?! Shame on me. This is a truly fantastic Japanese Green Tea. From the moment you open the bag to the lingering flavors on your palate everything is so good. The leaf is a vibrant green. Lush. Jade. Elegant deep jade. Mostly small leaf but also some long needle like leaf. And the dry aroma is luscious. Mango, passion fruit, hints of grass and vegetal notes. Even an interesting honey note I just pick up. A very sweet honey not savory like Manuka. The wet leaf is very mushy. Smells of asparagus and slight cream. AND OH THE MOUTH FEEL. It’s so silky. Wow. Just a tad bit of astringency. The flavors are newly grassy but mixed with a perfect amount of umami and some vegetal notes. I love this tea. Love, love, love.
