Okay, so this is some tasty tea. But I’ve got a lot of other sencha to go through so I’m looking forward to finishing this one off and opening up a new one. Because of that, I’ve been trying this with somewhat heavier leaf than O-cha.com suggests. This time I did 9g for my 12oz and I steeped it on the longer side of things.

OMG. So good. It’s really sweet and pungent and thick and yummy. Absolutely zero bitterness and only a tiny hint of astringency. I think this is one of those really quality senchas that give a great cup no matter how you treat it.

I’m trying to be a better tea logger and actually post semi-regularly again! I’ve let my tea tasting senses become too complacent – it’s time for some focused and attentive tea drinking!

Sometimes my notices for PMs and such have been questionable. Email me at your own risk at aug3zimm at gmail dot com.

1 – 10 – Bleck. Didn’t finish the cup.
11 – 25 – Drinkable. But don’t punish me by making me have it again.
26 – 40 – Meh. Most likely will see if the husband likes it iced.
41 – 60 – Okayish. Maybe one day I’ll kill off what I have in my pantry.
61 – 75 – Decent. I might pick some up if I needed tea.
76 – 85 – Nice. I’d probably buy but wouldn’t hunt it down.
86 – 100 – Yum! I will hunt down the vendor to get this tea!

Not that anyone but me particularly cares, but there it is.
