Yum, this is my kind of sencha. Spinachy aroma, brisk with a nice grassy fresh taste. It picks up a tiny bit of astringency over successive cups which provides a nice contrast to the sweetness. I got 4 good steeps out of this tea, pretty good for a Japanese green tea. The only knock against it may be that it lacks the complexity of better senchas but that’s a fairly minor quibble.
Pleasantly surprised by how good the flavor was considering this is a nearly 2 year old sample.
