It's all about

long-lasting sweetness and softness. A unique green tea - there is no bitterness even when brewed hard, and while there are typical green tea marine aromas present in the wet leaves, the overwhelming aroma in the cup is sweet grains. It fits somewhere between low-oxidized Taiwanese oolongs and sencha, with the dominating profile highly dependent on water temperature.
