Excellent for mid-grade, low-price sencha. Great value for an everyday drinker (I think I paid ~$8 for 4 oz). Nice and rich vegetal flavor. Notes of spinach, sea weed, and freshly-cut grass. Good leaf size, but still a fair mount of dust which contributes to a match-like cloudy brew in the first couple of infusions.

I think it makes a fantastic cold-brewed iced tea as well. Really brings out the subtler, sweeter flavors and virtually no bitterness that way, only downside is that you don’t get as many infusions this way before it becomes it really watery. I’ve even blended with a few lighter greens for giving them more “edge” when making iced tea.

Everyone I’ve offered this too has commented about how much they loved it. Would buy again.
