In anticipation of shincha season, I am developing a game plan for which teas to try this year. I am looking for both a fuka/chumushi, and an asamushi with a preference for more of a grassy/ fresh vegetal flavor profile and less of the toasted/roasted flavor. Prefer vendors that are easy to order/deliver to the states. Some teas that I've tried recently to guide suggestions:
O-cha 2011 harvest: Yutaka Midori (this was very good, but was heavy on the umami, a little toasted tasted for my preference), Sencha Miyabi (this one didn't do much for me, kind of unidimensional and not very flavorful). Certainly open to more O-cha suggestions
I've tried the Supreme line from Hibiki-an, and was thinking about maybe trying their "Premium" grade fuka and asamushi sencha, and/or the Farmer's shincha. Anyone who's tried these have comments? I know they get mixed reviews here, but I was reasonably satisfied with their lower grade "supreme" stuff a few years back, especially remember liking the fuka supreme.
Thanks for the help!
