This is a very good sencha. While I’m not the biggest fan of sencha and have somewhat limited experience, this one was more enjoyable than most of the others I’ve tried. The aroma is deeply fragrant, a little roasty as well as creamy, with something fresh and intensely green that reminds me of a forest. (I keep saying that teas smell or taste “green” or “purple”—maybe I should just say they taste like chlorophyll and anthocyanins!) It brews up to a bright green color, and tastes quite lovely—with an infusion of 1 min as recommended, it comes out to a very mellow, balanced brew. It has a rich and savory, almost buttery mouthfeel, verging on umami. The grassiness is light and not bitter. The aftertaste is bright and fresh, almost citrus-like. The description on the package said it was reminiscent of a moonlit night, and in a way it is very soothing and brings up images of nature. This is one I would be happy to keep on hand!
