This my first ever Sencha – part of a gift from my niece.

I can’t really say a lot about the flavour: I found it quite mild and without much character, but pleasant enough – nothing to dislike about it. There was the tiniest invigorating bite – something like root ginger, but just the tiniest hint. Pleasant but nothing outstanding.

I let the kettle go off the boil for several minutes – as per the instructions – so I’m guessing at eighty-five degrees as the water temperature.

Incidentally, I made a second cup the same way from the same teaspoon of tea – I didn’t notice any difference.

ETA – I made this today with a bit more tea – a piled-up teaspoon instead of a moderately heaped one. It’s a bit more interesting – touches of boiled cabbage and liquorice with the teeniest hint of root ginger.

Just as yesterday, I made a second mug with the same teaspoon of tea and the flavour is just the same – fascinating to wonder how many times I could repeat it, but I couldn’t drink all that tea!

I got a great batch from 2015. When opening the bag i got an intense aroma of fresh, creamy butter and fruity notes. I did my first steeping at 40 degrees for 2min to open up the leaves, then 85-90 degrees for 10s for the rest – recommended by a japanese tea farmer, seems weird, but really works. The first steeping had a lut of butter and tropical fruits in the aroma, rich and thick texture. Tasting it i also got some notes of more baked goods, tropical fruits ending with some coconut.
The rest of the steepings had more grass to them, but over 3 steepings the intensity held up well.

Didnt find it mild at all, even though it was harvested half a year ago! Seems to hold up really well.
Bottomline: Really impressed with this sencha. Recommended!
