Shincha Yutaka Midori
First Picked Green Tea, Loose Leaf
Shincha Yutaka Midori is another very fascinating green tea that offers complex flavors. When warm the liquid from the first steeping is mildly earthy and sweet with no astringency. But as the liquid cools it becomes more astringent and full bodied. The second brew offers a slight earthiness, no astringency at all and a very well balanced, full bodied whole flavor. Shincha Yutaka Midori is a most intriguing tea that will please a good many green tea drinkers.
