This Sencha is a wonderful dark green colour and forms very crisp and dry leaves that are thin and long and oh so fresh. They have a vegetal and floral scent in it’s raw form.
Once steeped the tea forms a yellow coloured liquid that has a sweet grassy aroma that reminds me of fresh cut grass. Ahhh :) Lovely.
In short and simple terms this tea is: grassy, sweet, floral, fresh, light and smooth.
In longer terms the first sips have a little sweetness that has floral undertones before a thick grassy mist appears and very quickly mellows itself to create a light and refreshing finish. There is a little dryness in the after taste that leaves a somewhat perfumey taste amongst the grassy remains on the tongue. The more I drink the sweeter it becomes and also with a little more dryness.
It has beautiful body and form which proves it’s quality (when they say superior they mean it). Two cups in and it’s still keeping the same light and fresh qualities that really make this tea wonderful. Plus I have a slight green tea boost from it’s caffeine which always happens when I have a nice pot of green tea.
