I am a huge sencha fan and when i read the other reviews for this tea, I was crushed. I ordered it anyway and initial brew was disappointed - it was light and I walked away. But a few minutes later I saw it on the counter, had another sip and it was PERFECTION. So maybe it needs to be brewed a bit longer but is as fine a Sencha as they come. I'm happy that it only has a few stars. I'll order it all!
