As directed by Den’s, I brewed two bags of this, in ice cold water, in their $3 special “Reicha” plastic iced tea pot. I let it sit for about two hours, shaking it a few times throughout. This turned out much better than expected. It’s certainly not the strongest sencha flavor I’ve ever experienced, or the most nuanced, but for iced green tea it’s quite good. What really struck me was the complete lack of any bitterness or astringency – there’s not even a hint of anything unpleasant. This tea is slightly vegetal and grassy, but also almost sweet, even though it contains no sweetener. It’s just a clean, crisp, green tea taste — and you couldn’t ask for a more convenient brewing method. This is going to be great as the weather gets warmer.

Bio

I like strong, robust flavors. My current favorites include strong black teas (Keemuns, Yunnan teas and Assams, for example), flavored blacks such as Harney’s Paris, oolongs of any kind, and gyokuros. I like Rooibos and honeybush teas as well, and other herbal blends to help me relax in the evening.

I am willing to try just about anything, but I am not particularly fond of jasmine tea, very fruity or heavily flavored blends, anything with pineapple; and I know this is practically heresy, but I don’t like Darjeelings.
