Refreshing

Nichigetsu sencha has just the right level of astringency / grassy freshness and depth of flavor. It is tasty and refreshing and perfect for an afternoon pick me up.

Good medium strength tea

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.

Great daily tea!

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.

Great value, refreshing

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.

A great flavor

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.
