Yay! I get to try this sencha from a seller on Ebay.
It is pretty good quality , a bit more like a gyokuro than a sencha because the leaves were so tiny and dark green. I did the first infusion at a low temperature (60C). It was sweet and umami very very strong. Very soupy. At time it was too much umami for me.
2nd infusion was 80C for 15 sec. This one was much better balanced for me. Umami still strong but not dominating, sweet and a bit grassy. I got 3 or 4 more infusions from this before the flavour started to go. That’s pretty amazing for a sencha.
Flavors: Grass, Sweet, Umami
