Very good! Much enjoy!! Senchtastically deliciously enlivening!!
Quite different than the Asanoka sencha, but also delicious, if lighter-bodied. Steeped at 158F, the highly appealing aroma is of fresh-cut grass, which persists in the flavor, where it is joined by seaweed and lima bean. This is an umami-rich tea. I secured two excellent steeps, the second using water just a few degrees hotter. I will be buying this tea in my next order.
This is one of the first teas I bought when I started drinking Japanese Green Teas. I enjoy it very much. Sweet flavor and bright green color. Not only is it a pleasure to drink, but appealing to the senses of sight and smell. I have bought this tea several times as a daily drinker, and will eventually get back to it, but I am still exploring other types of green tea from Chado. I would recommend this tea for everybody, but especially those first discovering real green tea, because of its flavor. (I know many westerners have a hard time with bitterness.)
