Copy cat that I am, borrowing from pop the pu-erh and oolong topics.

Share what green you are drinking currently ... however please also share in TeaDay's daily topic. :mrgreen:

Feel free to "illustrate" your offering.

Currently drinking Kuradashi Sencha from Hibiki.

Rather good first infusion though possibly a little weak, will increase steep time for the second.

Sugimoto Hachiju Hachiya shincha. It is light but well-balanced and very pleasant. I still have about 350grams of shincha and slightly more Chinese green, so I should be set with greens until next March or April.

I'm drinking a cheap and easily bitter Bi Luo Chun to get rid of it before a hopefully much better one arrives...

Beginning with Yutaka Midori Supreme LE from O-Cha.

I see Kame Jirushi Gyokuro also from the O-C in just a little bit.
