Where do i start with this one… opening the sample i received from jing i notice grass, yes grass! If i didn’t read what was on the package i really would think its fresh cut green grass!
I took a teaspoon off this mysterious grass thats called sencha and brewed it for 3min with 70°c temp. like the instructions on my bag where.
The wet leafs look well seaweed like some other greens when they are wet! The color off the brew is a mild green that looks tasty!
The taste is actually pretty sharp to the tongue, maybe i used a bit mutch leafs, or brewed it a bit too long. I’m not really sure why but i tought it would be softer in taste because i had genmaicha before… Didn’t expect that without the rice this tea is sharp and pretty strong for a green one!
I’m liking the taste but going to lower my amount off leaf a bit with the next time i make it. Then i’m sure that i can compare it with this brew…
Probably going to order this again in the future but its more a tea for in the spring, or on a hot summer day in my opinion, but couldn’t let this sample sit in my cupboard for that long! That would have been a shame!
edit: the other review mentions this is a japanese breakfast tea, have to say i notice a bit after my first cup that it gets me more alive and awake then i should this late in the evening lol! Next time gonna check steepster before i brew a new tea!
