Cha Do Raku's favorite.  Complex flavour.  The first brew is filled with umami, sweetness, with a kick of bitterness and acidity in the background.  The second brew gives a striking green colour.  Well balanced, but, needs to be brewed right.  I will have to relay on my mother to place order with Saigo En every year one year in advance.... Special stock.
