If you want a good sencha and you’re on a budget than this is the one for you. As the producer himself already stated, it’s a bit more astringent due to higher level of catehins (and it’s the way it should be if you’re drinking sencha primarily for health reasons). Tea leaves presentation is beautiful. Very nice and fresh green colour. Brew as recommended. Infusions after the first one (which I found to be mild) will be more astringent (especially the second one). Aroma is grassy and fresh, a bit woody as well. Overall a good sencha.
