Here is a "Precious Dew"  from the Shizuoka region produced from the Samidori cultivar, often used to make Gyokuro and Matcha.

The dry leaves display the characteristic depth of shade-grown teas, with their dark hue and intoxicating smell of raspberry.

The delicately sharp liquor is smooth and is accompanied by vegetable accents of spinach and sunflower seed. Exquisite!
