From Harney & Sons

In the course of making Sencha, it happens that some leaves fall out in the rubbing process and come out flat, folded in two or double-folded in four. Because they look like willow leaves, the tea made of such leaves is called Willow, which has a lighter and less lingering taste than Sencha. More than a few people prefer to drink it after a meal as well as between meals. The tea leaves are naturally bigger than Sencha’s. A great value.

Another sample I ordered recently. The leaves are dark green and flat, and the dry aroma is similar to sencha as well as powdered matcha. The brewed tea is a vivid light green. The taste is vegetal, with a very identifiable spinach broth quality, as well as the nori seaweed taste common to sencha. It can have a slight bitterness which is absent in cold brew, and is overall quite mild, yet rich flavor-wise.

The official page for this tea says that it is considered not good enough to be sencha, but I found it quite enjoyable as a light green tea. It has been a while since I tried the H&S sencha, so I am not sure how they compare, but this one seems a touch less strong.
