I received this tea as a sample with my 2010 Shin-Cha Select.
This sencha is finely coated with a dusting of Matcha, which gives the brewed tea a slightly brighter color (as well as a slightly less translucent appearance).
The flavor is very fresh and vibrant and vegetative! The matcha gives a sweetness to the cup that I’m really liking. Just a hint of bitterness cuts through the sweet. Very pleasant cup indeed!
