The dry powder has a nutty, green, and woody aroma.
The infused color is bright green and opaque. The aroma is sweet green with notes of maple leaves and piled grass. The taste that is sweet green, and astringent with notes that remind me of sweet mochi.
Unlike matcha, thick swirls appear after whisking the sencha powder. I found the taste brisk and enjoyable and would recommend using more than 6 ounces of water to moderate the astringency.
