drank Sencha Hosen by Ippodo
4 tasting notes

dry leafs smells very powerful of marine notes like seaweed, mussels, seafoam, also salty olives and wet freshly cut grass. when brewed the salty olives and seaweed persist on the nose, the taste is very full bodied with a heavy dose of umami bringing it almost in Gyukuro territory. Very grassy , and there is asparagus and raw cabbage as well. It is very sensitive to temperature and steeping time, and dosage, every time i brew it comes out a bit differently. Now it has been open for four weeks and i definately note that flavor is more muted than the first times i brewed it which is a shame. Very nice allround Sencha on the full-bodied side but use if up within the first 3 weeks if possible

Flavors: Asparagus, Cut grass, Kale, Marine, Olives, Salty, Seaweed
