Recently finished the exellent organic Mie sencha and although im stocked up with more :) felt id open up this new sencha.

First i noticed the leaves. Very long with a nice fragrant smell of grass (the good kind ^^)
The liquid was very clear with a light smooth feel to it. Flavours of vegetable and grassy notes. VERY pleasant although a bit to weak.

Recommended amount of leaves is 4g/70ml, in my pot that would be 10g.
Next time i will try 8g and see what happens. But i can imagine a large amount is needed because these large leaf do not infuse very quickly.
