Taster’s Review:

This is a delicious Sencha tea.  The flavor is light yet rich.

This Japanese Sencha has a clean, vegetative taste – not quite grassy, but more like steamed vegetables.  Broccoli!  As the sip approaches the finish, a slight grassy tone presents itself, although it isn’t a bitter grassy taste.  The aftertaste is sweet with notes of butter that deliciously coats the palate.

The overall flavor is sweet with a slight creaminess from the buttery note, and a fresh, leafy kind of taste that is both vegetable and grass.  I like this Sencha very much, while it does have a lot of flavor to the cup, it has an enchanting lightness to it.  It isn’t overpowering, making it the perfect cup for mealtime… or any time!
