This is my 1/2 way point review. I have been drinking this tea daily now for a week. I think I can some up my feelings with theae points about the tea:
1. Broth like umami (think chicken soup with no salt)
There’s a reason why people don’t add sugar to fine green Japanese tea. I find myself needing a sweet snack beside it, though.
2. Bright yellow colour (in a white cup), yellow green in clear.
People walk by and see this colour and are like wow. Much the way they do with matcha.
3. Amazing dry leaf (the way they sort this tea is incredible)
If you see pictures of the fresh and rolled leaves next to each other, you wonder if they are the same. The sifting and rolling leaves a product that feels like needles. I have not
Seen this from store bought senchas.
4. Ice brings out the green character. The aroma of the dried leaves and iced tea match very closely and enhance appreciation.
Overall, I am happy with it.
