I haveto agree with the other reviews, it is a cheaper tea, but it has a good flavor. One of my favorite to make iced, I use, .5 oz (by weight) and 46 oz (by volume) hot water steep for about 5-6 minutes, dump some ice in it to cool and water it down a bit to taste, play with the brew times if you like, I personally like a strong green tea. It’s inexpensive enough to make daily. It also is a great everyday hot tea.

For the price, this is a very nice tea in terms of flavor and color. This is my everyday stock green tea of choice.

Nice and basic every day sencha. Lacks the pungent “sea weedy” aroma I enjoy from other Japanese greens.

Got 2 infusions 1 1/2 and 2 minutes at about 180. Sort of bitter, but not overwhelmingly so. Very vegetal and slightly grassy. Nice sencha for the price.
