Accidentally oversteeped. Was aiming for a minute thirty, and didn’t realise my timer didn’t work until a few minutes later. I also brewed it too hot, so this cup should have been a total failure – but it wasn’t! Okay, the sencha was a little burnt so it definitely tasted grassy, but there was a nice strong smoky bergamot note. I think I prefer gunpowder over sencha in general, so will have to have another cup (properly brewed) before I make a stash-enhancement decision.

Bleh. Brewed it again with the proper specs, and the sencha taste was even stronger. Very grassy, fishy sencha with a slight citrus fuss from the bergamot. Won’t rebuy.
