After Fukushima, I was not sure how is it with radioactivity in Japanese teas, so I asked Peter of Pu-erh.sk . He told me that the Japanese tea does not leave the country until it pass the test for radioactivity. The farmer had to wait six weeks for his test. Then there were two extra veterinary checks performed in Slovakia... So I'm OK and I can enjoy my tea :)

Dry leaves smell surprisingly sweet after strawberry jam in the bag. It is a very fresh scent. Wet leaves issued grassy "spring" like smell (probably just my wishful thought in the middle of winter).

Grassy flavor comes with fine sourness, bitterness with light hint of marzipan and finely dry feeling on the tongue.

I am preparing the tea in the small porcelain teapot 80ml, 2-3g of tea. For the first infusion, it pays to wait for cooler water about 50-60°C. Be careful, if you pour a hot water on the tea, the brew will be bitter. Steep for about 1 minute. Second infusion for 10s and the third for 15s. Enjoy :-)

Quotes - Green tea


„Processed green teas, known as "aracha" are stored under low humidity refrigeration in 30 or 60 kg paper bags at 0–5 °C (32–41 °F). This aracha has yet to be refined at this stage, with a final firing taking place before blending, selection, and packaging takes place.“

Quotes

„It is essential to forget feelings and conscious perceptions to gradually return to the Way. Perceptions are seeds of birth and death; if you keep consciousness of perceptions in mind, then you will conceive feelings about objects. If there are no objects inside you, then how can outward objects occur? If outward objects do not occur, inner objects do not emerge; so inside and outside are peaceful and quiet.
When mind kills objects, you are a wizard. When objects kill mind, you are a mortal. “
