From New Mexico Tea Company

The tea has a light liquoring, fresh and smooth with reasonable depth and body. The cherry flavoring and subtle rose hints give the tea a wonderful exotic character.
Hunan Province produces some excellent Japanese style green teas. Early in the new season the tea is a bright emerald green and has the best flavor noted by a spring fresh character with pungency and body.

Iced: Start with 1 gallon of filtered water. Bring half a gallon of the water to boil in a pot. Turn off heat (let cool for 1.5 min.), and add 3 tablespoons (1 oz), let steep for 2-3 min. Strain the tea into the other half gallon of cool water and refrigerate. (if you want to serve immediately serve, you can pour the concentrate over ice)

The temperature on this Sencha should hover around 140 degrees. I use a bit more tea per cup (2 tsp/cup) than most recommendations so I find that 2 minutes is about the perfect steep time. The tea is very sweet although a few friends of mine have told me they prefer it with sugar. The flavor is very full but not too strong. Overall, a very good tea!

Softly green with rose strong in the nose and mouthfeel. Have to be in the right mood to drink a tea a rose flavor, but when I’m in that mood, it is lovely. Very pretty looking tea with the rose petals.
