From t Leaf T

A classic Japanese sencha tea. The large dark green leaves brew to a fresh, slightly astringent and bright green infusion.

I am still wary of green teas, but wanted to brew a classic Japanese green for my sister to try as she is just getting into green tea. Its probably the least offensive tasting tea I’ve ever drank – mild, with a hint of that buttered vegetables taste that sencha tends to have. This would be good to have while enjoying a meal, though I prefer to pair my foods with hard liquor.

ETA: Seeing as the Sencha Fukujyu has been discontinued, this is as close as you’ll get. Its not as astringent and grassy as the Fukujyu though.

If I may make a suggestion, maybe try 1.5tsp steeped in 4oz 160 degree water for 1 min. I hope that gives you a more satisfying cuppa.:)

I’ll give that a try, thanks for the tip!


No problem! All greens aren’t created equal… and I hate when companies treat them like they are.

A lovely Sencha with a good grassy taste, is often quite astringent.
Fantastic with a hearty meal.
