    As every single review, this one is going to be utterly subjective, nevertheless these are my impressions:
    I have to disagree with Violetta´s opinion. What she experienced must have been due to the small amount of leaves she used. I personally like my teas stronger, this one is no exception, I prepare it similarly to the gyokuros, which means more leaves and colder water, 65 C approximately. If you prepare it properly, even the third infusion is really enjoyable and still on the sweeter side of the spectrum. You can have up to 5 infusions, even though those will lose the sweetness and will be somewhat bitterish. (often I prepare 6) My personal impression is that this tea is rather sweet but I gave my colleagues a few sips and they told me it is quite bitter. I have to emphasize that they do not drink teas at all so for me their opinion is irrelevant :)
    I give 4 stars only because 5 would mean that it is perfect. But considering the taste, the price and the 100g package it is an excellent everyday tea which will not empty your wallet totally. + I guess no one drinks competition grade gyokuro on a daily basis ;) I have already bough 9 or more packages of this tea what explains everything.
    In a nutshell: It is a very nice sencha with a slight sweetish touch of gyokuro.

    Another fine tea from Tsuen Tea. Hard to describe, it's a sort of bitter tast, but not in a bad way. Then the sweetness comes through. A lovely drink I would recommend to anyone.

    This one is not what I like, you can brew it only two times, third one is just nothing, watery, and taste is just average. Won't buy it again, there are some more higher quality ones.

    This sencha has a very nice balanced taste with a hint of something special. It's not too difficult to brew, and the taste is very addictive. :-)
