This Japanese green tea is very unique and unlike anything I had ever encountered before.

The name "Hana" represents "flower" & "kokochi" represents "smell." Naturally, the tea offers a very fragrant aroma, with very pleasant floral notes.  The flavor is sweet and vegetal at the same time.  

For 5+ years, the Japanese Tea Research Centers have been working on a new type of tea that would appeal to the younger generations: something more fragrant (Japanese teas are traditionally not known for fragrance, but flavors instead).

This tea is the product of that research and development of a new process!

I was fortunate to get to meet the farmer than made this tea! (Second picture.)
