I can think of absolutely no better way to enjoy this time of harvest. Only thing better would be if the cherries were not delayed in blooming.
I have been drinking my Farmer's Sencha for the past couple of weeks. It is remarkably clean, fresh, and subtle. The color is outstanding. With friends last weekend we used only one tablespoon instead of 1 1/2 T and while I didn't think I would enjoy it more, it did focus my attention to the subtleties of flavor. This is a fine, delicate, tea, with flavor and aroma easily lost if you are not relaxed and waiting for it. It calls for great attention and quiet.
Everything about the experience, my first with Hibiki-an, has been top notch. I've enjoyed watching the progress of the harvest through their newsletters, the rapid shipment to the US, and the pleasing package upon arrival.
Thank you VERY much, you have made this season memorable.
