Regarding tea, I have been demanding more and more. I knew that. I am excited to try tea made from uncommon or special variety, and produced by a slightly different way or whatever.
The other day, I had a green tea made in Shimanto, Kochi prefecture. It made from Yabukita, the most popular variety for green, and produced under open-air, which is also traditional way to grow to produce Sencha. In that sense, this is the very standard Sencha.
The tea wasn't the same one that I used to have, but when I sipped it, it reminded me of my childhood. I don't know why, but I just remembered the tea made by Mother or Grandmother, which made me feel relaxed.
I like something special, but I also feel happy to find out the taste that I had been with me.
