More often than not when it comes to purchasing tea, I’m an easy mark.
Bancha Goishicha is a dark or post-fermented tea from Japan. This particular tea originates from Otoyo town, which lies in Kochi prefecture on Shikoku island, and was produced in February 2015.
Here we have another one of Canton Tea Co.‘s line-up of cute little 100 gram mini-beengs.
Alistair of What-cha fame certainly gets his hands on some interesting teas, and this is one of them.
Just as I did last year, when we were at our Summer house on the Baltic I bought a 500 gram packet of Sevan’s Orange Pekoe grade Ceylon tea in the local supermarket.
Dateline: a small cottage on the Baltic sea – cliff in front, pine forest behind. Mid July.
It was one of those oven hot July days that slowly unfold out of a truly faultless blue sky.
