I had a bit of a weird time figuring out what this tea was. I have several teas in little sample tins in a ziplock bag that kicks around in my purse for me to drink at work/my parents/school. I was trying to figure out what flavoured sencha this could be as it picked up scents from some other teas.

Anyway, once I steeped this it was clear; it’s the delicious sencha ashikubo. When I’m at work I actually leave the leaves at the bottom of my cup and sip away. I could get a few more infusions out of them if I saved them but this is so much less fussy at work, and it seems to take a long time to get bitter or lose any of its loveliness. I think I actually prefer this one steeped good and long.
