I don’t personally prefer this sencha. I just find it too grassy and loud compared to other green teas that blend more smoothly into the background. I steeped this for two minutes as recommended, but it still tastes a bit bitter. This tea smells absolutely amazing. The pineapple flavor is probably the most authentic I’ve ever encountered in a tea – just like biting into a fresh juicy pineapple. I only wish it were paired with a base I enjoyed!
