This tea was gifted to me for review.

I did 3 steeps at 160°F – 60s, 15s, and 45s.

This was much lighter and mellower than I was expecting for a shaded tea. I did use a new (to me) kyusu, so it’s possible I misjudged the amount of water. But it was still very pleasant! Smooth and slightly sweet with vegetal spinach and umami notes. Not as much intensity as I generally find in shaded sencha, but also no bitterness to speak of. There was a nice crisp and refreshing green apple skin note toward the end of the sip that I really enjoyed. I actually found that same note in their matcha, which is interesting…
