From Golden Moon Tea

Sencha is a Japanese green loose leaf tea with the delightful aroma of a fresh country meadow after the spring rains. Grown in the shadow of Mount Fuji, this smooth green tea is traditionally served to guests in Japanese homes. Not only is it beautiful in color and beneficial to the body, but also healthy and delicious.

Meh. I was expecting more, but tasted less. Dry leaves are very small, bright green slivers, like cut grass, with a mild vegetal aroma. Infusion tasted a bit like cooked asparagus, but really not much flavor. Did not hold up well with subsequent infusions.

Whoa, with a Steepster rating of 50 I thought this one would be a lot worse. Especially as I’m just now opening my ancient single serving sample. But this one isn’t bad! Maybe I’m just missing green teas that I haven’t been sipping as much lately. Yes, the pieces of the tea were pretty small, but the sample has probably been crushed a few times. But the flavor is decent. Maybe the under a minute steep does the trick? The flavor is a little vegetal and buttery, surprisingly fresh.
Second steep: OH. I can see why this one might not get such a high rating. The basket eventually is almost half full of steeped leaves which is probably way too much for sencha. The flavor does get a little bitey. Nothing like the delicious previous cup. I think Golden Moon’s sample amounts might have been hurting themselves.
Steep #1 // 30 minutes after boiling // under minute steep
Steep #2 // 30 minutes after boiling // under 2 minute steep

Not too bad, and one time I even got to eat it with sushi, because I kept this tea sampler at my work and had late night sushi ordered. Nothing spectacular, but not bad, either. And it is a much yellower color than green.

Not too tasteful, nor aromatic. Lots of fannings compared to other senchas.

Brewed 2 min. No additives. Hot
Very smooth. Minimally vegital. With a sweet finish.
Each additional brew becomes more smooth and sweet.
Good for 3 infusions with good flavor retention.
