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.
- Caffeine: None LIGHT Moderate
- Top note: Smooth

- Finish: Complex texture
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!
Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!
Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
