I had this tea both yesterday morning and today using slightly different steeping parameters.
Both times, I stuck to Western steeping style (1 tsp per 8 oz) instead of using more traditional Japanese measurements. The difference was that I steeped things for 2 minutes yesterday and for 3 minutes today. The 3-minute steep is slightly stronger, but this is still quite a light-tasting tea.
This tea is a bit astringent with a slightly grassy aftertaste, but otherwise it’s quite light on the tongue when I drink it. I taste some bitterness, but not much of that marine, umami flavour that I’ve learned to associate with other senchas. I’m glad I got the chance to try this.
