This is my second tasting of this, and I quite enjoy it. It’s vegetal and smooth, not bitter. I’m going to try a second steep to see how well it fares… So second steeping, not as vegetal and it’s quite sweet! So was not expecting that! Second steeping i used boiling water and steeped for 35 seconds. I’m impressed!

As much as I like Gyokuro, sencha is also quite like gyokuro but a tad bit lighter and not so much as assertive. I recommend gyokuro and senchas made by maeda-en and yamamotoyamma that are sold in asian supermarkets. They are quite just as tasy and If there is a tight budget you can get away buying a packet of 5oz for 10 dollars! Yummy!
