“The basic green tea of Japan. There are numerous grades of Sencha and even the mediocre Sencha can be a delight. A delicate tea that is grassy and sweet and a little astringent.“
dry leaf has lots of big ass stems = “quality is low”
cold water, 20 min, the green liquor slowly appeared, very nice in color.
taste: grass-like, reminds of wheatgrass shots but those are more like eating raw grass. yes bitterness is low, but after >30 minutes it gets more bitter.
a second infusion in cold water took 45 minutes and just half amount of liquor difused into the water.
do not add sugar! 🙂 took away the taste!
keep? Yeah i drank it.
