This is not the most complex or unique sencha, it’s just very solid. It has clear liquor, a well balanced astringency and bitterness as well as a good range of flavours. The body is medium and the mouthfeel on the oily side I’d say.
I didn’t find the aroma to be particularly strong, but I did detect notes of green vegetables, banana, baked bread in the dry leaf scent. First infusion is very mineral and yeasty with a light sweetness and an intriguing spiciness. There are marine notes as well as a bone broth flavour. Subsequent steeps highlight more of vegetable and fruity flavours, such as broccoli and peach. The aftertaste has a sugary sweetness throughout, but not that much going on beyond that.
