I love green tea, and this tea made me love it even more. It’s warming and comforting, great on a cold cold morning. It even tastes great cold.

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)

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.
Another great straight tea from DT. A little cup of this one, in the morning, is a threat!
So what we got?
Here we got a Sencha which doesn’t have the “fishy” taste of the Kabusecha, here we got a grassy note, a lovable grassy note from the usualy Sencha. If you prefer to have a little more of the “fishy” taste go for the Gyokuro, it’s the perfect balance between this grassy tea and the fishy Kabusecha.
