Radiance Tea House and Books Loose Leaf Green Tea 'Sencha'

Tea Information:
Tea: Sencha
Type: Green Tea
Packaging: Loose Leaf
Company: Radiance Tea House and Books
Purchase: In Store, 158 West 55th Street, NY, NY
Description: Japanese teas are steamed, which gives the cup a distinct green color and sweet taste. Sencha is also high in vitamin C and is a part of Japanese way of life.

Steep Information:
Prepared after the official tasting, during the Steepster meetup and tea tasting

Tasting Notes:
From Japan

Medium body

Taste-vegetal, rough (gritty?), slightly astringent and bitter

Sorry my notes are so short and cryptic but we were having fun chatting it up. (Thanks again to everyone from Steepster for hosting this.)

Rating: I am intentionally not rating these teas as I didn't really have a chance to sit there and sip on them and think whether I would by them again, like to play with them more, although none were awful (1 leaf) or fabulous (4 leaves)
