I am reviewing the 2016 version of this tea which I still would say is fairly fresh like the rest of my Shincha. I would say this one is my favorite is has a really nice balanced flavor, vegetal and grassy with a mouthwatering sweet finish. Along with some mellow umami flavors and a tad of astringency.
Out of all of the ones I tried I found this to be my favorite and most memorable tea, one that I will for sure be buying more of in the future.
