I have not had this cultivar before. I am very impressed. To begin with, it is a fukamushi, with an inviting color, a lovely yellow with subtle green tints. As soon as the water hits the leaves the aroma of fresh, young spinach rises immediately to the nose. Delightful! The flavor is robust and smooth, with a hint of corn I would say. I enjoyed this tea very much. If you do not over-cook the first steep, holding the temperature to 158F or so, the second steep will be a flavorful, satisfying one. I used 163F for the second steep. A third steep is possible, and has no off-flavors, but is fairly weak. I will be buying this excellent tea with my next order.
