Spring Japanese #tea 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 ;)
@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.
@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!
@nomad yep. It’s my go-to stop when I’m out on my bike, but there’s little that’s truly exceptional there
@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...
