drank Ichiban Sencha by Harney & Sons
59 tasting notes

This is a very fine sencha – thin small leaves and powder, really. Smells very tangy dry.

The infusion is a cloudy bright green. The taste is focused around a savory ‘umami’ flavor – rich and matcha-like. You could probably get away with using more tea leaves than you would for normal japanese green infusions without having to worry about too much bitterness.

Long-term tea drinker from Michigan. Has a tendency towards Japanese green teas, lighter oolong styles like Ti Kuan Yin, and the occasional pu-erh. But recently, has been trying to develop a taste for black teas.
