Recently we traveled to Japan and finding good Japanese teas was high on my list. I found this tea store in Takayama and bought some of their Sencha and some Genmaicha. I haven’t tried the Genmaicha yet, but have been drinking the Sencha for several weeks. I have to say that it is the best Sencha I have had. It has some matcha in it and that gives it a much stronger taste that straight Sencha. I should rate it Strong but the way I make it, it comes out more of a medium Sencha. it has good grassy aroma and although the tea store says that Sencha from this region has a bitterness, I find the taste excellent.
