My colleague brought back this tea from his Japan trip. This can cost bout RM60. According to him, there is generally 4 grades of tea/green tea? And this sencha is one of the sub-grade in the 3rd grade, 1st grade being the best in quality. Apparently, Teramachi-dori Nijo is among one of the famous tea shops there, just like Purple Cane is to Malaysia.
Direction for taking this tea. For first steeping, it takes about 1 minutes, we steep it a minute too long that time, and it taste bitter, never knew they is such details step on tea making… anyway, not my cuppa tea to learn these technique 😉
