    Brewed this tea according to HugTheTea’s recommendations, as well as my own.
    I used a porcelain Houhin for both tries.

    Upon first look, the leaves are nicely uniform and dark green, they smell grassy and slightly sweet.
    The brewed leaves are a nice uniform green.

    The recommended method gives a more mellow experience with lovely soft flavours and strong umami on the first brew.

    My favorite way to brew this tea is the following:
    90 seconds at 60 C for a strong umami, slight astringency and bitterness, followed by a subtle sweetness
    15 seconds at 80 C brings out more mellow flavours
    30 seconds at 100C brings out more sweetness

    After you’re done brewing, you can eat the leaves by making a salad with them, which allow you to get the most out of the leaves and its nutrients.
    There are various recipies for this involving Genmai (puffed rice similar to be found in genmaicha), soy sauce, or ponzu sauce.
