I've tried the rest and this is the best. The beautiful malachite powder, the deeper emerald liquor. No bitterness whatsoever. The flavor so savory & nutty with a sweet finish; a texture like the finest unryu washi. Within moments of finishing the chawan, I was overcome with what I can only describe as an enervating beatific calm. That's never happened before. After my morning & evening zazen, this is the perfect way to assist in carrying that cultivation into the day and into my dreams. I am eternally grateful to Hibiki-an for choosing to share this simple gift of the Earth with the world.
