This one of the better teas I got from Yunomi. The leaves are beautiful with a deep green colour and have an aroma of pine, green apple and green beans, complemented by yeast in a preheated pot. Wet leaves, on the other hand smell of freshly cut grass and cream.
The taste is well balanced and crisp with nutty bitterness, almost fruit-like sweetness and a light citrusy finish. First infusion is more similar to a gyokuro with strong umami, bready notes, and sweet aftertaste. Later infusions are more grassy with more bitterness as well.
Mouthfeel is very thick and unusually creamy for a sencha. It is active and warming in the throat, very nice overall.
