Tea type: green tea
Tea name: Kukicha
Bought: through Tomotcha monthly tea subscription
Impression: this tea has a very smooth taste which I can best describe as freshly baked cookies coming out of the oven. This is really the association I had when I had my first sip. The tea is stronger in flavor than a sencha tea and does contain a slightly stronger astringency. I can recommend up to three steepings, although the first two are the best ones. Water should be around 60-70 C, not higher.
