Description

Sencha teas are Japan’s most popular, they are a variety of steamed green tea that is usually bright, grassy, fresh and astringent. Fukujyu Sencha is considered to be one of the better exported sencha teas, it is known for its refreshingly sweet and very light grassy taste; its bright green leaves are harvested from only the first and second flush. Fukujyu Sencha is characteristically light, with very little grassiness, it is sweet and slightly astringent, but its oceanic notes are what sets it apart. It has savory seaweed, nori-like properties that are gentle and complex, but add to its wonderful tea taste!

This is how to do it:
1-1.5 TSP or 1 BAG
200ml
80°C
1.5 - 2 min

Just not there, 2 steeps at best for 2 minutes @ 175 degrees. Flavor and nose (aroma) wander from very good to barely there. Highly disappointed, won't purchase again. :-(

This is delicious. I am very impressed with this Japanese sencha. I brewed 6.1g in 550ml of filtered water at 61c for 2.5 minutes and it made a superbly smooth and rich cup of tea. It had more than enough going on to keep the experience interesting for two full steepings.

Will gladly purchase again and I can see this easily sliding into my rotation.

ps this is hardly a mouthful of sea water. this is a green tea.

Perfect everyday tea..slight sweetness and mildly astringent well balanced but as others have said the oceanic /nori like attributes are what sets it apart which is the reason I reorded a larger size its a great tea for morning or evening meals that won't break that bank

The leaves are pretty and green, and have a sweet aroma. I steeped 1 ½ tsp in 8 oz. hot water (about 175 F). To the nose, it is fresh, grassy and very oceanic. To the taste, it is vibrant, sweet, smooth, grassy, slightly astringent and very oceanic. Indeed, “its oceanic notes are what sets it apart”. The sweet oceanic aftertaste lingers in the mouth until the next sip. The 2nd infusion was less fragrant, less vibrant and less complex, but still very smooth, and very good.
This is a great quality Sencha. Very tasty and satisfying.
