This is my absolute favorite Sencha. I went through an ounce of this tea and welcomed it when it came back in stock. It is creamy and sweet green tea. Its not bitter nor does the vegetal taste overwhelm. Its a very balanced sweet sencha. It has a small amount of broken leafs that brew a nice strong cup that is a medium body, but most is whole leaf. I have been drinking a lot of matcha tea but this is far more cost effective and I enjoy this tea.

While a bit poetic, the descriptor of this tea's flavor as light dancing through water is fairly accurate. Its flavor is extraordinarily delicate, a little floral and a little saline, highly subtle but no less pleasant for that. My only quibble is a certain astringent aftertaste; this may be due to overbrewing, however, as I'm not always as careful as I should be about watching the clock. So make sure to set your timer!
