This is how I remember sencha! Very strong green vegetal aroma and a seaweed-y flavour. It has a thick mouthfeel and the colour is light greenish yellow. The way I made it now, it didn't taste bitter like other senchas have before, which is a shame because I quite liked that bitterness and I feel that would really complete it. I don't know if it's even supposed to be bitter but I like it that way. I'll see what I can change, maybe brew it longer or hotter.

EDIT: I lowered the value to 2/5 because this doesn't resteep very well. The steeping is the best, the second is sometimes okay but sometimes hardly even worth it. Maybe I should use larger amounts of leaves.
