The dry leaf of this tea is light green in colour, leafy in appearance, and has been well sorted to remove sticks. It, however, lacks a great deal of aroma to form a strong first impression.
I tried brewing this tea numerous ways: various water temperatures, tea to water ratios, and brewing times. Using a slightly hotter water temperature (around 90C degrees) and a longer brew time (2 to 2.5 minutes) seemed to work the best. However, even when using this method, I would have to say that this tea was not to my liking. The liquor is pale and lacks taste and aroma. It only vaguely contains the kind of sweet and grassy characteristics that make sencha a unique drinking experience.
My review: 2.5/5
