As a beginner I'm really glad I picked this tea!
It can be mild or strong depending on your tea leaves to water ratio. It's not too bitter or too overpowering either, very well balanced :)
Having only grown up with black tea, it took some time getting used to the flavour. After a few cups I got really addicted, I didn't know sencha was something I would crave :)

Excellent green tea for daily use.
This daily Sencha is realy good value for the price for daily sencha drinking. It surprised me many times in comparison with several more expensive teas with its rich taste. Even in second and third infusion. My favorite daily tea at this time.

This is a great tasting sencha and I am able to get 3 infusions (1 min/30 sec/1.5 min). The only downside is that the tea particle size can be small (may have just been the packet I received) and it clogs my very fine tea pot strainer. Not really an issue as I have a glass tea pot and can adjust the tea level to compensate, but this may be frustrating for other opaque tea pots.

Great Everyday Sencha. I sometimes brew multiple cups using the same tea; retains flavor over multiple brewings.

This is a pleasant tea overall. This one can be steeped multiple times but I've found a good steep of upwards of a minute or more extracts the most flavor available. The astringency is mellow and blends in with the overall taste. This one can be quite bold if you desire.

The price of this tea makes it hard to pass by. With medium dark leaves, and a nice grassy fragrance that filled my kitchen. Tried a second infusion, but turned out too bitter. Not a big problem, since 1 morning cup is enough for me.

I was surprised a 2nd flush sencha can taste this good. This tea is really worth the price, and in my opinion can be enjoyed even after getting used to more expensive higher end senchas.
