From Tea & Whisk

Umami is the keyword here. If a Japanese Sencha is only judged by its umami, no green tea we had in the past beats this tea. Does that make this tea the best Japanese Sencha we have? We definitely put this tea up there in our top tea tier. Is it for everyone? Probably not.

One way you know for sure this tea is amazing is the fact that you can use boiling water to steep the tea and still taste amazing. It won’t get bitter nor non-drinkable like most Senchas, it actually tastes incredible.

We do realize using a porcelain teapot to make this particular tea has a much better flavor than a clay teapot (Kyusu). The clay teapot we tested in the past seems to hide the umami flavor in the tea instead of highlighting it. This tea is also very unique because of how much it changes depending on how you make it. So do a little experiment with this tea, use lower temperature or boiling water and see how much it changes the flavor. Use porcelain or clay and see if you see the significant difference in its flavor as we did.

Ah, the dry aroma is wonderful. Sweetgrass, a sweet pastry, slight stone fruit, and a bit of grass. The leaf is so pretty. Glossy green and needle-like. 1ish tsp. Water temp 145.
10 seconds – grass. too light
20 seconds – smooth mouth feel. Fresh-cut grass, sweet grass, umami,
30ish seconds – umami, grass,
uh 1 min? Umami and grass.
This is a lovely green. Plenty of umami notes.
