Hosen Sencha


It's been a while, thought I should post something.

Hosen Sencha is that something.



It's from Ippodo and as far as I can tell it's a lightly steamed green tea, I can't see a classification on the site but it appears to be asamushi. I enjoyed the first few sessions but that is to be expected with almost any good quality sencha after a prolonged diet of pu'er. About a week in and things become clearer, this is good but not great. This is a little to subtle for my tastes, or to quick to become bitter with some heavy handed brewing. Reminiscent of Jing's everyday mao jian & bai sha lu in that I could happily drink litres of the stuff in a day but it's never going to really grab my attention.
