The first steeping was actually rather sweet, but subsequent steepings were more vegetal, which is what I am looking for. I enjoyed the difference and the fact that I was able to get five good steepings before the flavor started to fade. I ordered the other senchas available from Ippodo and look forward to trying them. I would order this again.
This was my first tea from Ippodo and I'm really pleased -- the taste is very light and astringent. I drink it several times a day so I've adjusted the parameters slightly to make it last longer. I will repurchase in the future and would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a high-quality daily sencha.
Nichigetsu is a solid offering from Ippodo. I use it as an everyday tea. It's very refreshing and a great value for the quality.
The flavor is almost perfectly balanced between lively and mellow. It's great hot and also makes a really smooth cold brew if you want to bring out the more of its mellow characteristics. You can tell the tea is very good quality because you can easily make 3 pots with the same leaves. A very good value.
I love Japanese tea, but have always found it super expensive and tricky to locate. Luckily, I was referred to Ippodo Tea's new US online shop and couldn't be happier! My tea came super quickly and it is delicious. I drink this during the day at work, and it is so satisfying! I don't have to add anything to it either because it is super tasty!
