My all-time favorite! Rich aroma, full-bodied taste, beautiful, dark green color. Wonderful!

Nothing has changed since my 2017-11-12 review. This is still an exceptional fukamashi and is the most consistent one from year to year that I've ever had. It deserved 5 stars in 2016 and 2017, and it still does in 2018. I just did four infusions in the 100cc shudei kyusu by Jinshu that was also included in my latest order. There was still plenty of color and flavor in the fourth brew. Whoever produces this tea has exceptional process and quality control. Sazen's pictures of the brewed tea perfectly represent what I just brewed myself. Awesome!

This is just how I like fukamushi, both strong and refined aroma.

A previous fukamashi I tried from another excellent vendor this year was not very good; it was loaded with dust and the taste was mediocre, as was the color. I thought maybe this was just a bad year for fukamashi. I decided to try Chiran again (it was great last year) and was very happy to find it was still a fantastic fukamashi. It has very little of the tea dust that is so common with this type of tea, low enough that I have no trouble with clogging when using any type of ceramic filter (providing you don't let the brewed leaves sit in the pot for too long). Chiran has a deep green color and is not too cloudy. It's taste is excellent and it is easy to brew, especially for a fukamashi. It has brewed perfectly every time!

I prepared this tea as a gyokuro (started with 40-50 ?C water) and I could enjoy the first 2 infusions as a very good gyokuro-like tea. With further infusions its bitterness came forward that was quite smooth, not strident at all. This tea has a rich, round, full-bodied taste. The best fukamushicha I have ever tasted!
