This tea is not for novice brewers. It’s pretty difficult to brew correctly. However, a correctly brewed cup is sublime. This tea is handpicked, so the leaves are beautifully uniform and whole. A correctly brewed tea should have a delicate neon green-yellow hue. I suggest upper 160s’F for 45 seconds with a slow pour—so about 1 minute with a normally fast pour. Once you get it perfectly, you should taste a perfectly balanced cup that is marked by silkiness. That’s what makes this superior to Matsuda’s Sencha. Lots of lemony spinach flavors, seaweed, etc. But it’s calm and refined. Not overly bracing.
