The dry leaves have a grassy green, savory and nutty aroma with salty marine notes.
The infusion is bright yellow-green with a buttery, brisk green aroma and flavor with a touch of spice.
This seems to be a fukamushi sencha and it reminded me of late-Spring and the aroma of freshly cut grass. With a naturally bold flavor and astringency, a shorter steeping time of 30 seconds after the first infusion brought out milder, sweeter results.
