The dry leaves have an aroma of marine air, green grass, warm hay, and wood.
The infusion is light yellow-green with a sweet, vine green aroma and a taste that is green and woody with low astringency and a long green finish.
This sencha remained pleasantly mellow with a sweet aroma throughout three infusions. I even picked up a hint of maple in the second infusion.
