Meh. It wasn’t what I was expecting. It tasted like I brewed up some fresh grass clippings.

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)

On the 11th day of tea-mas, DT gave to me….
This tea seems to me to have a very mild flavour. Somewhat grassy, but light.
I just finished my third steep, and it still was quite lovely. I might steep it for a bit longer next time I make the tea, I think my first brew might have been a little shorter than optimal, but I’ve been having bad luck with green tea lately, so I decided to go short rather than risk it.
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.
