Tasted like I brewed a cup of grass clippings. Added 1 tsp of agave. No help. Had to throw away. Infused again from same group, same temp but only for 1 minute. Much better. Went back after drinking half a cup and added more water to it to diffuse even more. Now it resembles something I could drink on a regular basis. Reminds me of the tea we get at the pho restaurant. The sales person did tell me that it smelled different than the last batch of Japanese sencha they had in store, and that they had been out of it for a while. So perhaps because this was a super fresh crop was the reason for the strong grassy taste.

I’ve been drinking tea as long as I can remember, but have only recently acquired a taste for proper loose leaf tea. I’m hoping to chronicle my journey of discovery here :)
