From O-Cha.com

Grown organically in the mountainous Kirishima area of Kagoshima. Medium steamed, this sencha has an intense green color to it, medium body, and carries a rather intense, nice grassy aroma. Very nicely balanced astringency, aroma and taste, this is probably one of the best organic sencha green teas we’ve ever come across. The quality of this tea got our attention and we decided to carry it for those organic green tea enthusiasts who demand the very best.

I’m down to my last serving of this tea and still am not sure how I feel about it. This tea gives me fits because it’s so finnicky. More often than not I miss the optimal steep window. But occasionally when I hit the target, the tea is amazing. Intensely grassy with a zesty vegetal flavor and a fresh ocean breeze aroma. There’s some umami, mineral notes, and even occasional hints of floral. It hits almost every flavor note I like.

However resteeps are less spectacular. Harsh sulphur-like bitterness mixed with a cooked broccoli aftertaste. Brewing in a clay teapot helps remove some of the bitterness and rounds out the taste.
