The leaves are very long and unbroken, which always appeals to me. After steeping, the teawater has an extremely light colour. The leaves themselves smell very fresh and grassy.
The tea itself has almost no recognisable scent. The tea itself is also extremely mild with a very soft grassy/bloomy tone to it. It has no bitterness and leaves a very pleasant “fresh” pallet of flavours in your mouth after drinking it.
I find Sencha green teas to be far too grassy. This one has the positive characteristics of the sencha, but without the overpowering grass-flavour. One of the best green teas i know. Be careful not to oversteep though, as the tea tends to get a bit bitter when steeped for too long.
