I hadn't had any for a while but just got some delivered.

It's is wonderful, the taste is perfect and it perks me up just nicely.

Such a lovely treat for me.

I always return to Mr. Itaru's tea, even while rotating through several green teas.  It is the perfect daily tea in my opinion!  Delicious, refreshing, just right . . I agree!

Once I learned to not steep it too long, it really became awesome.

How long specifically do you steep this tea?

do you use boiling water or do you let it sit for a while before you pour it, my Japeglish is a bit rusty lol

just found this

MAKING GREEN TEA:

When making green tea it is not necessary or desirable to use boiling water. Moderately warm to hot water is best. Tea leaves should be placed in the water for about 30 seconds (45 seconds at the longest) and removed. Superior quality green tea should look light green when prepared in this manner.

I don't use a thermometer, but pour when the water is just short of boiling. Strongly steaming, water just starting to move, but not bubbling.  

45 seconds seems to be optimal, but those directions usually include a second steeping for a longer time.  I don't like to reuse tea leaves so I steep a little longer.  At present, a minute and a half - but that could change.  After 2 minutes of steeping, the taste is getting flat and I don't like it.  

I've worked my way down from 5 minutes, to 3 minutes, to 2 minutes and at a minute and a half the taste is definitely getting more clear and bright.

I may try and discipline myself to 45 seconds very soon!

Is this the tea with the toasted rice in it?  The package I got isn't in English, so I don't know if it's Mr. Itaru's or not.

Yes, it has toasted rice.....If it's from NAP, it's Mr. Itaru's.  Package is in Japanese.

You heard it here, folks:

If you speak with a heavy Japanese accent, "Itaru" is how you say "Italy".

i don't know about this brand of tea but i strongly recommend ( and i'm really very fond of green tea) those from Ippodotea.jp, it's the best tea of the world in my opinion, senchas as gyokuros and of course matchas are utterly gorgeous!

We LOVE this tea.  The bag is almost empty and I will mourn its passing.  There is no substitute.

I finally got it that permium green tea is very expensive.

Personally my favorite green tea is w/o the additional roasted grains. Still, if I wanted to order Mr. Itaru's green tea I have to buy it from the European agents. In the U.S. the tea is quite expensive, yet the price at the European agents is twice the price in America, 37.5 pounds sterling, which is the equivalent of $60.

There is a company here that imports premium teas from China, including Longjing green tea, which is the finest, tastiest green tea I've ever came across, as I like to say, beyond my dreams. They sell it in fancy boxes of 50 grams (bulk), which is apparently intended to "justify" the high price: the equivalent of $10 per box, which is $40 for 200 grams. This is extremely expensive, yet the taste is heavenly. I hope I can make do with 3 boxes a month and absorb the blow... If I can manage, this is most worth while.

I have a cup a day, it's the best tea I have ever drunk. although i do like the sip right also.

I recently bought one of each sip right so i can give friends and clients the correct tea for their type. encourage them to find out there blood type lol

might even give as a Christmas present. in fact I might give the personalized cook books to people for Christmas too.

Longjing is also called Dragon Well - perhaps you could find it less costly by that name.  It's very tasty.

Where is this tea grown?  With the radiation in Japan  becoming more and more of an issue, we are concerned about food items coming from there.

Most of the radiation is going into the ocean, not escaping as steam or vapor...  Also, the prevailing wind is offshore, so even the vapor that does escape is more likely to damage the west coast of the US more than the land area of Japan...

There is a balance between the good a product will provide vs. the harm it will do.  We have to do the best we can do based on what is available.  However, we shouldn't just write off entire classes of food because of a perceived threat.  We may disregard so much possible good that we need for no valid reason.

Longjing is my all-time favorite everyday tea.  I pay around $30.00 for almost 200 grams here in the US for a medium grade.  Being one of the Imperial teas of China, there are several grades of this tea available so you may be able to find a cheaper grade that still has good flavor, like Victoria mentioned.  I must say that I prefer Chinese tea over Japanese tea.  There are so many varieties of Chinese green tea, all with various flavor profiles that one could spend a lifetime exploring.  But I do like to drink genmaicha in the Fall and winter - so warming and earthy!

Interesting and I wish I could rest easy on your comment but with the coverups going on and the research my husband  has presented to me.. I feel safer avoiding products from the Japan area as well as the Pacific Ocean.  

There is more than just radioactivity involved.
