Leaf Type: Green
Where to Buy: Two Leaves and a Bud
There’s a reason this is our best selling green tea – it has a sweet, light flavor you want in a cuppa’ green tea, without being bitter. How do we do it? These whole tea leaves are gently steamed as they dry. Tamayokucha has a beautiful green hue you’ll enjoy seeing in your cup as much as savoring on your tongue.

I recently received a newsletter from Two Leaves and a Bud, and this tea was named their “Steep of the Month.” So, in honor of that, I decided to steep myself a cup of this beautiful tea!
I love the color of the brewed liquor. It is the palest hue of chartreuse! The aroma wafting up from my teacup is very light, and smells a little bit like earth and grass after the rain.
Having reviewed this tea previously, I don’t know that there is much more I can say about how good this tea really is. And it is! It is remarkably light, but yet has a full, well-rounded flavor. There is no bitterness to the taste, just a sweet, slightly nutty flavor, with an agreeable vegetative quality to the cup. A very pleasing buttery characteristic washes over the palate as I sip.
I just love revisiting teas like this one. Truly a pleasure!
