I grabbed a sample of this because I wanted to call jeffery’s bluff about brewing this sencha like an oolong. Well, you really can do it! As far as what I’m used to for sencha, I found the taste to be a bit thin. It’s hard to describe. Here was the trade off: I drove around all afternoon with this sencha stewing at the bottom of my cup grand pa style and it never got bitter. I think that’s rad. I love sencha but it always feels like a hassle. With this stuff you can litterally chuck it in your cup, blast it with hot water at the gas station and let it cool for as long as you want. I’m serious. Try it. If anything, get a sample just to experience the adrenaline rush of pouring boiling water over a sencha. It will make you feel alive.
