This Sencha is from a local store and it carried no other information than the name "Sencha". I've stopped asking questions in that store since the staff know zero about harvesting year or origin.
Thanx alot for the answers! I'll try again with less leaves and measure the time more closely. But maybe I just haven't learned to appreciate cooked hay yet
I have to admit that the only loose-leaf green teas I've had before were gunpowder and unspecified "green" from Ahmed tea. The last one was really delicius, the gunpowder still dwells in some cupboard but I will throw it away soon. I've loved some bag tea greens but that doesn't count.
Maybe I just don't understand green tea, tho I hate to admit it
I may go for a tea-nerd if one doesn't look to close, but I'm nothing but a wolf in sheep's clothing!
