I got a great batch from 2015. When opening the bag i got an intense aroma of fresh, creamy butter and fruity notes. I did my first steeping at 40 degrees for 2min to open up the leaves, then 85-90 degrees for 10s for the rest – recommended by a japanese tea farmer, seems weird, but really works. The first steeping had a lut of butter and tropical fruits in the aroma, rich and thick texture. Tasting it i also got some notes of more baked goods, tropical fruits ending with some coconut.
The rest of the steepings had more grass to them, but over 3 steepings the intensity held up well.

Didnt find it mild at all, even though it was harvested half a year ago! Seems to hold up really well.
Bottomline: Really impressed with this sencha. Recommended!
