The vanilla is a warm flavor, earthy rather than sugary-sweet. Very nice, and I bet it would mix well with other teas. Tried with a little bit of milk.

The fragrance of the dried leaves is very sweet and reminds me of a little-on-the-cold-side Autumn afternoon, walking in a park or a forest with fallen leaves. Generally I don’t brew green teas with boiling water, but the vendor suggests doing just that. Doing so, I was pleasantly surprised with the outcome. The tea base does not taste scorched or bitter at all, and the chestnut pieces add a buttery sweetness to the overall drink. This tea is very calming and relaxing.

Trying a full cup now. Again, the temperature is a little lower than what the vendor recommends. The is a soft roundness to the flavor, followed by a slightly sharp grassy finish. A deeper aroma, rather than “bright” of a light-steamed sencha. I definitely think this would be better with savory foods or a meal, compared to sweets or desserts with a light-steamed sencha.

A little nutty, a warm flavor. I drink this in the evenings when I am working but don’t want the caffeine to keep me awake.

I brewed this tea a little cooler than what is recommended by the vendor. My first impression is that the tea has a deeper, richer flavor than other senchas I have tried. I think it would be really good with heavier foods, rather than a light sweet.

I really like this sencha. It is quite easy to make (as long as you mind the temperature), and a second steep is also very flavorful.
