Picked this tea up on the recommendation of a friend, found it a good value.

Tea leaves are small, rolled, deep dark emerald green. Put 1tsp in about 8-10oz of water around 175 degrees F for brewing, for around 1:30.

Tea is very sweet, grassy, and fresh tasting. More of a green color than the cloudy yellow of some sencha I've had.

So far I've only steeped one cup at a a time, but I may update after I've used one 1sp repeatedly to steep 2-3 cups.

Will be buying again.

Welcome to RateTea, and thanks for your review!

I also noticed this tea to have a richer green color than a lot of sencha.

And I also found this tea to work well with multiple steepings--much better than most Japanese sencha in fact. That definitely influenced me to think of this as offering outstanding value, so I recommend trying that too!
