Nio Advent Calender 2023. #2
I saw a few names that were similar but not quite the same as this so I figured I would give it its own thing.
Ah, the aroma is lovely. Slightly grassy. Bits of hay. Sweet grass. A bit of stone fruit. The leaf is thin and needle like. Mainly dark green with bits of lighter greens. Lots of freshly but grass with the first sip. As with most Japanese greens, this one is like a two-year-old and shouldn’t be left alone. The astringency, if you do, will punch you in the face. The grassy notes dominate with each steep though I do also get some vegetal notes.

They’re always weird with their names not being the same on their packets and the website, etc lol. I think it is the same as “Fukamushi Sencha Murasaki”, but it doesn’t really matter. :P

Skysamurai

That’s what I thought at first too! But then I was like there must be a reason they changed the name. Different producer perhaps?

Cameron B.

On their website the listing is “Fukamushi Sencha Kagoshima Murasaki” but the package in the photo is “Kasugaen Murasaki Sencha”. (shrugs)

Do you guys start with a one-minute steep for these teas? It’s what the website recommends, but the veggies always punch me in the face.

Skysamurai

Oh man no. I almost taste it right away and like every 10 seconds. It’s a fast one!

I usually do about 45s at 160F for sencha, but to be honest I don’t drink much fukamushicha. For the second and third steeps I usually do like 15s and 60s+.

Thanks for your feedback! I might be drinking more of these teas because my scale broke today and they’re among my only pre-measured samples.
