Hakoniwado's Yame Fukamushi Sencha has been one of the first enjoyable sencha's of the year for me. I've tried about 12 others, but most of them just didn't have the depth that I prefer. This sencha has that depth, along with a pleasant mouth feel and an energy that is truly intoxicating. I will be the first to tell when I don't know something - I don't know the term the Japanese use to describe the feeling a tea gives. I doubt that it's the word qi, but one never knows.
I discovered this tea in the OTTI #11 on TeaChat, though I can't disclose which number it is in the group.

That's not very pretty, is it? Well, I ask you, who said it had to be?
I love this tea, and if you feel like it, try it yourself. Brewed properly, it's a humble wonder to behold.
