Started the day with some pleasing O-Cha sencha, brewed up in my Petr Novak shino kyusu and enjoyed from my Eiichi Rock yunomi. A mention in another topic reminded me that it has been a while since I took the Rock out for a spin. Maybe it's time for a rotation between home and work so it gets out a bit more for a while....

Tsuen's San no Ma from O-cha. I loved this from last spring's shincha OTTI and I am loving it now. I wonder why it is called Kirameki as a shincha.

Enjoying a late morning sencha from my 'mojave' Eiichi cup--tasty Aoi sencha from O-Cha, nearing the end of the package. Good stuff.

Sayama-Kaori culitvar from Tea's of Japan. Sweet and floral scent, although not too floral. I believe this is my first time having this cultivar. It's nice for a change, compared to what I drink more of. Yutaka-Midori, Saemidori, and Asatsuyu.

Kuki-cha from Teas of Japan. Very grassy, like O-cha's otsuuan (misspelled). The wet leaves smell like sweet potatoes.

Green tea from Hawaii, small batch harvested and pan fired by hand, the method of harvest is two leaves and one bud. The body is pretty light, some vegetal a grassy notes, but I like it. I still have to adjust the amount of leaves and temperature of water .. :oops:

Second steep of 2010 Genmai Cha from O-Cha. Not as good as new but it was stored in a tightly sealed double-lidded canister so still quite enjoyable.

Who wouldn't be happy with that setup. I love the feet on that cup. Is it from one of our tea ware artisans?

Pretty amazing to touch, a feeling of rough and rocky at the same time!
