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 :-)
