Savory with a rich but clean texture. The best part that it all came without being very astringent!

Wow, this is a really interesting sencha! I don’t really get the same “nori” taste from Omaesama that I do from a lot of other senchas, but I think it’s really interesting. It might actually become my favorite of the senchas I’ve had from Lupicia, not counting Uji, because Uji is my wife.

It has kind of a thick mouthfeel, and it’s roasted, but kind of lightly sweet, almost. There’s a little bit of a grassy lingering aftertaste, too. Also, Omaesama is probably one of the least astringent senchas I’ve ever had, which I wasn’t expecting given how thick it is—I think it’s thicker than Kirara, honestly, and Kirara had matcha in it. This is honestly one of the neater senchas I’ve tried.

I like this green tea. It has a savory sort of taste, strong but not seaweed or bitter. It was really, really green at the bottom and the color is nice for such a short steep of 1 minute.

I’ve seen some senchas that call for even shorter steep time!
