I think we'll add this to official steeping recommendations. 
Bancha Goishicha by Furyu
I bought a sample of this tea and therefore provide only a first impression.
I decided against the recommended steeping method.
I gave gongfu cha a try with this tea and it turned out to be a good idea.
My parameters: 2g/80ml/95°C/10-20se, up to 10 infusions
The smell of the dried leaves was a little bit difficult to describe: for me it was a slight scent of lactic acid which even had the steeped leaves.
A broken leaf grade which is so typically for Japanese teas but because the leaves were so large a strainer was not necessary.
The color of the liquor was a clear honey-yellow with the same smell. The smell did not appear stronger or weaker.
The flavor was characterized by a mild sweetness with a slight acid base note. The sweetness was more or less neutral, maybe a touch of honey? but I´m not really sure.
The acid notes were wonderfully refreshing and discreetly lemony.
