006 AO 蒼, Bright & Blue Tea

AO means blue. An incredibly unique tea with dark green leaves and an energizing fragrance. Grown using a special cultivar, this tea is a delight to the senses and famous for its beautiful emerald hue.

The cultivar is Tsuyu-Hikari which creates a bluish colour lighter than most other Japanese teas. Once brewed, AO has a pronounced sweetness hinting at chestnut and very little astringency.

Pleased both to see and to taste

I really enjoy the bright bluish green color of the tea as well as the taste so much! The color is brightly dark, but the intensity is just perfectly balanced mildness and bitterness with slight sweetness - not astringent at all. I am so proud of their perfect work! Drinker friendly even for Japanese. Good as a gift to my foreign friends as well as for myself as daily treat!
色と味わいがとても気に入っています。青みがかった深みのある鮮明な緑がとても綺麗で、見た目から予測するような渋みが全くなく、少し甘くてまろやかな味が気に入っています。日本人にとっても緑茶選びは難しいですが、このシリーズはコンセプトも明確で好みのものを見つけやすいです。外国人へのプレゼントのみならず、日常に飲用するにもおすすめです。
