Funny thing just happened, instead of going to sleep (it's past 12am here) I've placed my very first order for Japanese greens
Another vendor recently included a sencha sample with my order, and wow! I think I oversteeped it both times, it was quite bitter, but the umami flavour was incredible. I understand now how some teas are given a description of "brothy" around here.
So I'll be getting O-Cha's beginners' kit with the Kabusecha and Yutaka Midori. Can't wait
