Maybe one day we'll find a cure...
The cure has been found.
More shincha in da house...woooohooooo!!!!
In 9 years, I have seen a lot I guess. Early on I was too naive
and felt a vendor with a billion choices was for me.
Then I began to notice major freshness issues.
In 9 years I have certainly become a self confessed TeaSnob.
I like what I like generally, though I will try anything
and am willing to admit other teas into my cupboard.
Give me specialization anyday.
I still need variety, but it can be limited.
Kirameki shincha (of course) in my cup so far.
Every steep is a pleasure, just nothing to offend at all.
It is ashame it is only around in the Spring and
O-Cha does not offer anything comparable the rest of the year.
I guess this makes it that much more special.
SHINCHA SHINCHA SHINCHA SHINCHA SHINCHA!!!
