Reviews vary a lot, so it's mostly up to your preference. Some people do side-by-side comparisons, most seem to take them one at a time. Pictures are always nice, but not required. And be as detailed as you feel comfortable! With sencha, brewing times and temperatures would probably be the most useful along with aroma, color, and taste info. But you can get as detailed as brewing vessels, drinking cup, water used, etc.
