These days some tamaryokucha and dong ding oolong from a local vendor. After I found the proper brewing parameters few good steps can be obtained from them. And I have with me gyoukuro premium from hibiki-an. When I opened and tried I was a bit dissapointed; strong vegetal - seeweed taste and lack of sweetness, so I left it for a while. after 2-3 month I tried again - a nice sweet taste with a mild vegetable hint on the back, probably it was "row" and just need some time to mature. BTW do you have similar experience with gyokuro? or I just somehow changed the brewing parameters? (though I tried to keep them same)

Currently on Steep 2 of Hibiki's Sencha Superior. I do not know what it is but I have been on a Japanese green kick lately.

I just opened a bag of yuuki uji gokujo and brewed a pot. Did not like. I'm sure I'm messing it up, at least, I hope I am. I read somewhere here that it is supposed to be brewed like gyo but didn't see that on the website. 1g per 1 oz right? Cooler water?

IMO, that tea isn't too great. I would avoid all of the Uji products from Yuukicha.

"Slummed" it today with a bag of Tazo Chinese Green Tips (spring harvest).
Nothing special, but a lot better than Lipton green...
