Re: What Green Are You Drinking

Enjoying YM from O-Cha with Chip on his birthday.

Flavor profile is not nearly as rich and deep as it was a few months ago. This is a newly opened packet that has been cold stored since last year.

Can't wait for shincha :mrgreen:

Re: What Green Are You Drinking

This morning, Yutaka Midori from Yame from Den's. This tea was smooth, first steep abundant umami, but lacking the high points and potency of O-Cha. We sense that since Den does not nitrogen flush, this could attribute that to the age of the tea. Chip amped up the leaf ratio to 10 grams per 6 ounces...

Our box from O- Cha arrived yesterday, woohoo, 10 bags of Japanese sencha.

Chip opened the Satsuma yesterday, today awesomely, deliciously sweet, full of umami , great brewing session.

Kudos to my personal brew master :mrgreen:

It's happened a bunch of times where I write out a long post and then accidentally hit back on my phone or something else happe...

Oh Janice, what is a lovey little pot, love those spirals. It is gorgeous. We need to revisit his pots in our collection. I adore the whimsical qualities of his wares.

Re: Japanese Greens - Can’t Get Away

This is how much I love Japanese greens - if I had to choose a future with chocolate or Japanese greens, one to the exclusion of the other, I would choose Japanese greens. This is coming from someone who thinks chocolate is the best food ever. I used to drink a wider variety of teas, but now I must...

Re: Japanese Greens - Can’t Get Away

My favourite teas are all Japanese green: Sencha (light or medium steamed), Matcha and Gyokuro. Oh, and I often have Genmaicha .... Oolongs, Chinese Green, etc. They are all decent teas, but it reinforces for me that my go-to for enjoyment is Japanese Greens. I’m getting to the point where I want t...
