Mitsue, Shincha 2023

This tea is exquisite! Wonderfully refreshing, with low caffeine levels and a beautiful green color. Can be brewed several times. I have been drinking it every morning for more than a year, and it never gets old! Highly recommended.

My experience with Mitsue tea

I love Mitsue tea, as soon as I open the bag, I like to smell it for a long time, its scent transports me to the tea fields. I drink 1.5 liters in the morning. I let it infuse a little longer than indicated to develop more aromas. That's how I appreciate it.

MITSUE

My favorite tea from my past order. It is extremely fresh and packed with high amounts of umami. The Flavor is very full, strong and detailed. The color and smell are very pleasant. The best part is that it can be rebrewed many times before it starts losing strength.
