I am not the biggest fan of green tea but I do buy them occasionally. With my recent order to Tablinshop in Japan I bought several. This one is pretty good. It has a mixture of three notes really, a sweet note, the tea is mildly sweet. It also has a mild vegetal note and an umami note to it. No one note seems to be dominant but they are all about equal to each other. At the rate I go through green tea I may not end up finishing this while it is still good is the only problem with this tea. He sold it in quantities of 190g only. In fact that was how I identified the package. He doesn’t label teas in English unfortunately. But I had bought three green teas of three different weights so I surmised this was the sencha because it weighed in at 190g. At least that much I could read. Luckily the Japanese don’t use different numbers from us or I would have been in trouble figuring out which tea was which tea.
I steeped this tea three times in a 200ml teapot with 6.5g leaf and 175 degree water. I steeped the leaves for 1 min, 1.5 min, and 2 min.
