Sencha is personally one of my most favorite. The fresh and woodsy aroma of the leaves is a scent I can easily distinguish and lift my mood up instantaneously. The taste itself can differentiate as well, to the preference of a person, whether they like someone bitter and woodsy or something more smooth with a small woodsy kick. The aftertaste is continues to be refreshing and enjoyable. A great choice to drink hot or cold.

Once again, the package says 170F but I used 160F water. I could tell by the looks of this tea that it needs a lower temp. Even still I may have overstepped or overleafed cause there is a bit of astringency. However, unlike Rwandan green this tea has a wonderful vegetal taste and brews up a gorgeous vibrant green. This is very much like gyokuro and the fussiness is merited by the lovely taste. I think when I brew it p next time I will let the 160F water sit for a min or two then steep to a max of 1.5min. That should create a tasty vegetal cup without bitterness.
