9 Tasting Notes
I’ve tried a few sencha sakuras (this one, Den’s – quite awful version – and Mariage Freres) and this one is my favorite. The cherry blossom add an almost spice-like floral flavor, deep but pure.
I hope they’ll have it in stock soon.
This tea makes me nostalgic. It was the first sencha I fell in love with, in 2008….
Its a lovely sencha – nice light asamushi with a chestnut-like roasted flavor. Very unique.
I have had the 2009 + 2010 – both were better.
Very grassy and vegetal. For a asamushi-drinker such as myself, this is a good fukamushi – light, clean, relatively sweet.
I normally like o-cha’s senchas and I primarily drink asamushi senchas…but this one’s TOO light and clean for my taste.
Great asamushi style sencha. A bit more vegetal than most asamushi’s, and very clean, light…no bitterness or astringency.
Lighter in body and sweeter than most senchas. My personal everyday favorite.
Great balance of the characteristics of white and Chinese tea. Hints of something toasted, clean flavors.
Almost too mild, however…
