A nice tea with a buttered vegetal fragrance and taste and that slight nutty taste I’ve come to associate with Sencha. There is the slightest bit of something that might turn into bitterness if steeped too long or at too high of a temperature, but in my cup it is just fine and good with a slight tang.
