The first thing you notice upon tasting is the creamy body and silky smooth mouthfeel. The color is a hallucinogenic bright green. This blend has sweet aromas redolent of fresh young grass, young bamboo, raw sugar, and chlorophyll. It has the ethereal vegetal notes of just-picked asparagus and sweet peas on the vine, balanced by earthier, umami-laden undertones of perfectly grilled mushrooms.
The catechin-rich treble notes on the finish are long and remarkable; it keeps delivering these sweet flavors long after it's swallowed.
Origin: Nishio, Aichi Prefecture (near Nagoya), Japan. Very pristine environment, incredible terroir.
