This sencha has quickly become one of my favorites. The dry leaves have a strong, sweet scent. It makes me look forward to opening the package each time I prepare this tea. The tea itself is sweet and refreshing with a pleasant grassy flavor. I highly recommend this tea!

This tea is absolutely delicious. Very sweet and pleasant, and quite easy to brew. It develops a more robust flavor after several infusions. Highly recommended!

This matcha is superb. I prepare it as usucha, but it is also suitable for koicha. The dry powder is a bright, luminous green and has a fine consistency. It smells sweet and creamy when dry.

I prepare this using 1 1/2 to 2 scoops using a chashaku (around 2 grams), with approximately 70 ml of water, at 80 C.

When whisked, the tea smells fresh and grassy. It produces a thick froth. It tastes very smooth and creamy with some umami. It also has a sweet, lingering aftertaste. I love having this in the morning as its taste stays in the mouth for some time.

Overall, I am very happy with this matcha. It will be a mainstay in my cupboard.
