This was a pretty decent sencha – I enjoyed the irony of drinking it as some of the season’s first snow was falling today. I liked this one best with a longer/cooler (2m at 140F) first steep. That steep was nice and bitter, but mouth-wateringly so, rather than mouth-drying. It had a nice milky flavor and texture to go along with the grassiness. Decently vibrant in its grassy notes. I was able to get 3-4 steeps from this one, all of which were tasty. A solid, if not spectacular, sencha. Doesn’t stack up with some of the other Obubu sencha I drank earlier, though that may be unfair, as this one isn’t as fresh at this point.
