This was a sample sent with my last Yunomi order. First brew on this was at 60C for 30sec. The tea was very grassy, astringent and bitter.
Second brew was at 80C for 10 seconds. Still bitter, grassy & astringent. The colour of the tea was a deep murky mossy green. I was not very happy with this sencha. It was too bitter even at low temperatures and the grassiness was too extreme.

I started this one out with 5g at 160 degrees for about 45 seconds with a small mugs worth of water (perhaps not the most exact form of measurement). The initial cup was very strong. Full of astringency and bitter grass. The color of the steeped tea was a magnificent green.

As I continued to steep the tea the flavor mellowed while still being very grassy. The astringency was simply more balanced. I upped the temperature to 175 which brought out a bit more bitterness at the end.
