Amazing smell, very different to all the other senchas i had, it’s hard to describe it, but it smells like some kind of a fruit, intense green colour and “gyokuro like” taste and effects, i no longer believe the idea that organic tea has weak taste or effects, this is a very rich tasting tea. A special treat, so far this was my favourite sencha i ever had. Arigatou !
