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


„The container in which the tea is steeped or teapot should also be warmed beforehand so that the tea does not immediately cool down.“

Quotes

„Hui Gan 回甘, Hui Tian 回甜, Sheng Jin 生津, & Hui Yun 回韻…In literally term, Hui Gan, sometimes referred to as Hui Wei, is to reflect sweetly on a past event. Borrowing from the term 'to reflect', Hui Gan in tea is, simply put, a reflection on the sweetness of the tea - when one drink the tea, when the tea slides through the cavity of the mouth into the throat, there comes, after a short while, a sweetness that rises up from the throat. This sweetness is sometimes accompanied with a fragrance. Do not keep the upper and lower mouth pressed together when sipping tea, but create a cavity instead by lowering the jaw. Let the tea wash over the entire inside of the mouth, and then direct the tea to slide from the sides of the jaw into the throat. While holding the empty cavity, breathe out instead of in after you swallow the tea, there is warmth in the breath accompanied by a fragrance, and the same fragrance that rises up from the throat. This is Hui Gan.“
