I steep this tea 3 times at 161F / 71.6C. Once for 60 seconds and twice for 20 (5-6 g tea and about 100 g water. All three cups are consistent. Good color like sunlight filtered through grass. Rich mouth feel. The flavor and aroma are mostly sweet umami with a slight astringency just enough to make the liquor taste bright. Like a memory of summer mornings when I was a child. Often I soak the leaves in cool water for a few hours after the 3rd steep for a delightful ‘old man’s steep.
This one seems to have bit more depth of flavour than the other two single-cultivars. Is it deep-steamed like a Fukamushicha? I like this one more actually!
Definitely not my favorite but not terrible either.
