‘Full-bodied’ certainly describes this sencha, almost to the point where ‘heavy’ might be the more accurate adjective for it. The finish lingers well beyond the point where most types of sencha fade, and this may be off-putting to those who prefer a brighter, sharper note to their Japanese green teas. However, it stands up well as a wintertime tea, strong enough to hold its own against even the sweetest cake or bun.

Academic. Historian. Writer. Fan. Tea drinker. Bibliophile (though that’s putting it mildly), amongst other things. But as to what those other things are, I’m afraid you’ll just have to find out for yourself.
