Spring Japanese harvest came in today. Spring sencha is such a joy! Looking most forward to trying the “first nightmare” white tea processed from tea buds which suffered an overnight frost in April, and the intern black tea. In the meantime, sipping color in to my life with a shaded sencha. ☺️
I think I will have quite enough green tea to get through to next year or at least fall harvest ;)

The local tea cafe sold me a kabusecha and told me it’s one of the best green teas I could get my hands on. I told the seller I might call his bluff. I might. Can you tell the difference just by looking at these two shaded senchas? Surely you can taste it if you look hard enough.

@redcrate Obubutea.com :) it’s mostly single-field arcana that they sell and it’s so fun to compare it year to year as a result.

@redcrate arcana?? Try aracha, phone.

@redcrate lightning was shooting from my fingers after today’s session ;)

re: Teaposting 

@rrix The second one has too much dust.

re: Teaposting 

@nomad yep. Same resealable type sachet, but the wind sencha is treated so kindly in comparison to the Miro batch. It’s amazing how many full banners unfurl in the teapot!

re: Teaposting 

@rrix Miro, as in the tea shop in Ballard?

re: Teaposting 

@nomad yep. It’s my go-to stop when I’m out on my bike, but there’s little that’s truly exceptional there

re: Teaposting 

@rrix I haven't been there in several years. My provider of choice is Floating Leaves (a few blocks away on Market & 17th). I'm looking forward to being able to go back to Miro for a drink someday...
