Blergh. I think I brewed it too long. Or something. It tastes like how acetone smells, very much on the after taste too. Kind of like when you’re trying to drink orange juice after brushing your teeth. I’ve steeped it twice though to drink during two different times of the day and it still tastes this way. I think this is from the Xmas cards swap last year, but it doesn’t have any markings other than the tea name so I don’t know.

Thanks a lot to YUNOMI for the free sample! It came beautifully packaged with a pretty postcard from the company.

As for the tea, I really enjoyed it. The more I steep it, the more I like it, actually. 10g might not seem like a large sample, but at three steeps and counting I’m really getting the most out of this tea. To my knowledge, this is the first straight sencha I’ve tried, so although I can’t offer the most educated opinion, I really enjoyed the experience. The first steep was more astringent than I’m used to, but from then on it mellowed out immediately. I’d definitely recommend a short steep time, as it’s quite bold. Overall, this one is very enjoyable. The customer service provided by the company is excellent as well.
