Shincha AOTE (80g/2.82oz)


Author Barbara C. Glancy   (United States)
Review My first impressions of Shincha Aote were complex and refreshing. The balance of freshness was very satisfying. This is probably one of the most unique green teas to drink. I followed the directions from Hibiki-an plus varied the infusion minutes. Experimentation allowed me to control the character of this wonderful tea. I was impressed mostly by the purity of taste? It was easy to drink and left a lasting echo of flavor. I have said this before and I will say it again, Hibiki-an continually amazes me with the quality of tea offered to their customers. Just when you think you have had a great green tea they surprise us with additional teas of high quality and flavor. I am so impressed by their passion for tea and other products. When it comes to Tea from Japan I only think Hibiki-an!
Very bad...Bad...Very bad...Ordinary...Good... 5 of 5 Stars!
