Wonderful Kukicha with a great balance of stems and leaves, the smell is amazing, it needs some care with temperature and steeping times (lower and shorter ), when i got it right, it had an amazing colour, almost neon looking with fresh vegetal aroma. Great calming effect too. Will order again, after more Zencha exploration 🙂 .
