Light and brisk
Japanese monks were writing about tea in the 9th century, but the world had to wait until 1740 for Sencha, when a tea merchant named Nagatani perfected a new process of steaming, rolling and heat-drying green tea. The result? An emerald-green tea that’s refreshing and smooth. No wonder it’s Japan’s most popular drink. (MK Kosher)

I use this tea to make iced green tea. I like it’s taste, I do not need much tea in my pitchet to make a strong tasting green iced tea and I can infuse it two times before it does not taste anything. I like less the fact that this tea taste a little bit like grass smells, but overall, i like this tea.
I have a love hate relationship with this tea. I bought about 150g about a moth month ago when I started drinking tea and loved it for the first while. Then things changed and my love affair with the tea ended. however last night I decided to make a cup and it was delicious!!! Light, vegetal….the way it should be. Not bitter at all.
Ooh, I liiiiiike this. I perceive a vague, mineral-esque taste to this one, but my palate is super-unrefined, so what do I know? I find the flavour is very much affected by the steeping time and the temperature of the water, and it’s the only tea that I can ever be bothered to actually be careful with (I’m lazy, see). When the bitterness starts to rear its ugly head… well, make that heads. If we’re using heads as a metaphor for bitterness, then this one’s a hydra. But when it’s right, it’s very, very right.
The aroma is very soft and faint, bold and planty. Very nice to inhale, as it is not too sharp.
The flavor, though, is not soft, but a sharper planty taste, stronger than it’s aroma prepared me to expect. It is very refreshing, despite the sharper taste, is quite smooth.
Unfortunately, I had been spoiled by David’s Sencha Ashikubo, which is very delicious and less traditional. Despite, this is still a great traditional tea.
