A Great Value Tea

I've given 5 stars as, although not the most complex of Japanese teas, it is very good value for money and it has a lovely flavour. I have been drinking this one for quite a few years now

Very flavourful tea

I love teas from Yame, they have a flavour depth which appeals greatly to me.
I drink the Snowing Mountain Sakurabana Sencha as a short shot flavour (5g, 60degrees, 100ml) which allows for the sweetness and umami to come out strongly and like a lot of Yamecha Senchas's, it can be likened to a Gyokuro.
