Pretty sure they were in stock yesterday, and I just made my decision to buy it today
. Oh well, i'll just pick another. Learned my lesson - cannot wait too long!
Well here is my brief ratings on the shincha's. I have no details, not even going to try that! In my order of preference
O-Cha YM Supreme - favorite one! The first cup really knocked my socks off.
O-Cha YM Classic - I had purchased this one previously. This is a very close second. I waited to try it again after trying all the OTTI's and it's still on top of my list
Green tea lovers Kagoshima - This one was quite different. I cannot explain the taste - but it was a different mouth feel and aftertaste than any other green tea I have had and I liked it!
O-Cha SM - cant remember specifics on this one (I drank a lot of these during the work week) but very nice
Maeda-en Gold - great green tea but nothing special.
Den's Kunpu - probably not doing this one justice. My only light steamed tea so I probably need more practice in the brewing. It was nice and sweet but a bit mild. My experience with the YM classic helped a lot with the others.
Happy tea - why have I not tried this one yet? Have to do that first thing in the morning
Thanks to Chip for this wonderful experience!
