2017 Ippodo Shincha is Here! I pre-ordered it so that I would get it at the earliest possible moment. And I would have, had the post office not let it sit in my city for 4 days before delivering it. It was shipped on a Monday in Japan, and made it here by Friday 10:00 a.m. where it sat over a long weekend.

The packaging was excellent like it always is from Japan. It was gift wrapped and
A large tin was included. The tea was divided into two air tight satchets.

I followed the instructions for a first brew. 10 g of tea and about 200 mL of water for 40 seconds total. These instructions seemed reasonable for sencha.

The result: good yellow sencha colour, mild sencha taste bordering on grapefruit at the end.

I brewed this several more times. I didn’t note anything in particular.

Unlike the other sencha in my cupboard, I guarantee this did not taste like socks.
I’m going to try some bottled water.

Been drinking green tea from Japan for many years. Even had some decent tea from this company. My opinion of this tea was very poor no matter how I prepared it. Even with good quality bottled water this tea tasted and smelled like old socks. Unfortunately we purchase quite a bit because Shincha, or new Sencha, is usually tasty. This was not and we wasted a lot of money.
