Tea from July 2019. Super short steeping time. Brews very light green colour and of course it is clear.

I feel completely tired today, I had another inventory check in night, but it was more okay than I thought. It was duty free shop on Prague airport. So much perfumes I had to scan. I wonder if the price of those perfumes are worth? 200 USD for 75 ml of perfume? I rather spend it on tea.

When dry, it is quite strong as seaweed, buttery, not very appealing. Astringency as well. But when brewed? It is different story! Of course little astringency is still there, then cut grass, some sweet notes, bit of seaweed too. I think it is nice example of sencha. It is not bad one?!

Flavors: Butter, Cut grass, Seaweed, Sweet

Preparation
170 °F / 76 °C 1 min, 0 sec 2 tsp 10 OZ / 300 ML

I haven’t had this particular sencha, but I have had a houjicha before that was made out of this particular sencha, and it was so good. I love Obubu Tea Farms, one of my favorite Japanese tea suppliers. <3

Honestly I have bought it, because I ran out of good (and loose leaf) greens and loved the name. To bring back Summer! Haha
