From Intelligentsia

This is a lightly-steamed Sencha from Kawane, Japan. It has a nutty character reminiscent of toasted wheat and sweet grass. The body is light and savory. It finishes with a lingering sweetness.

This is GREAT. Perfect blend of sweet/bitter, smooth/astringent, etc. It has a very pleasant grassy taste as you’re drinking it, with a sweet aftertaste.

I love Sencha tea. Bit of a grassy taste but a very enjoyable green tea.

I usually avoid the much-acclaimed Metropolis coffee house here in Chicago because of its college study-hall vibe and corresponding attitude, but it’s chilly here today (these Chicago springs…) and I needed a cuppa on my way downtown to, er, another tea shop. Their Japanese sencha from Intelligentsia is just light enough, just strong enough, and plenty green to remind me it’s actually spring, as the cold lake wind slices right through me.
