Sencha, Ice Infusion: a Brief Update

I gave it a second go today, leaving it outside in the sun while I had far too much fun mowing the yard (I think, as a good husband, I should share some of it with my wife). I used the same parameters as I did originally, 5 g of sencha with 5-6 ice cubes, let sit till ice melts.

I don't know what went wrong. The Summer heat did indeed speed up the melting, but this time instead of intense flavor and sweetness, it was bitter and grassy, and the liquor was quite cloudy. Oh well, I suppose it will take some time before I get it right.
