This week has been a difficult one – too much homework, too much work, too much of everything. Posting tea reviews somehow kept falling to the end of the list. So tonight, I decided not to do anything else on my list until I reviewed the most recent tea I had the pleasure of drinking. I admit – I opted for “ease of use” when I grabbed the Tamayokucha tea bag to brew and taste last night. Now let me tell you all about it…
Composition: Organic green tea – nothing more and nothing less.
Dry Visual: Bright green tea leaves. I wish I could have had a better view, but Tamayokucha is a loose tea in a silk sachet thus any distinct characteristics were difficult to ascertain.
Dry Aroma: Very mild vegetal smell… very mild.
Flavor: Tamayokucha is a delicious green tea. I was impressed by the flavorful, yet mild vegetal taste. I have steeped and enjoyed several cups of this tea, at times adding sweetener and at times playing around with steeping times. I enjoyed one cup with Sugar-In-The-Raw, but prefer drinking with no sweetener at all. Ironically, sweetener takes away from the vegetal quality that surprisingly I enjoyed tremendously.
Special note, the teabags contain enough loose tea for mug size brewing, so be sure to put away your dainty teacups when enjoying a cup.
Liquor: A unique lime green hue.
Brewing Time: Recommended brewing time 4-6 minutes. I brewed for each of the recommended times… 4, 5, and 6 minutes. The best cup of Tamayokucha Tea was brewed for 5 minutes.
Manufacturer: Two Leaves and A Bud
If you want to enjoy a cuppa green tea on the fly, grab a bag of Tamayokucha by Two Leaves and A Bud. If you have had the opportunity to drink a cup, stop by and let me know. I would love to hear about your experience. Until then… Happy Tea Drinking!
