This is my second time drinking Sencha Ashikubo by DAVIDsTEA and for the second time I’m blown away how good this tea is. The moment I open the package it smells delicious and vegetal. The tea leaves appear silky… they are dark green with lots of shine to them, simply gorgeous!
I steep at 82C for 3 minutes and it’s perfect. The smell is strong and vegetal with a hint of butter just like I like it. The taste is smooth with a welcome slight astringency at the back of my tongue.
I love this tea… love, love, love it! David, you are welcome to send me more samples! ;D Despite the price tag I’m thinking of splurging and ordering 50g.. it’s well worth it. :)
