Tea Tasting with Tea Wing

I recently did a tea tasting with Zach of Tea Wing.

Mare Gyokuro Hojicha

Zach sources all his teas (which are excellent!) straight from Japan…

He updates daily so stay tuned for posts involving a restaurant with an iced gyokuro tasting menu, tea auctions in Kyushu, and even tea harvesting in Yame.

In the meantime…

…I’ll be reliving the first sip of this heady and rich Shuppin Gyokuro.

P.S. His Kiwami Matcha is magical…look at the color!

We had it both thin…
