Gyokuru Asahi Tea
The staff mentioned a sea and a sweet note but I found it too mild for me and pricy at $5.

Gyokuro is the most highly ranked Japanese green leaf tea. Its aroma is richer than that of sencha even though it has tonic properties. This is because as soon as buds begin to spring in the end of April, the bushes are covered, so as to be in shadow all the time. Only top quality leaves are picked for this tea.
