Description

This Sencha green tea is named after the cherry blossom flower petals that bloom at the beginning of Spring. Hence, this sencha green tea is light and crisp with a refreshing, grassy taste. This Asamushi Sencha comes from the predominant Yabukita cultivar in Japan. Since it’s lightly steamed, this sencha produces a light-bodied yellowish-green liquor. 

Sencha Brewing Instructions

  1. Heat fresh, filtered water until boiled.
  2. Pour water into cups to warm the cup and cool down the water. You can also use a yuzamashi water cooler.
  3. Pour water over tea leaves. Recommended water temperature for Sencha is 176°F (80°C). The flavor will be lighter and sweeter at when brewed lower water temperatures such as 158°F (70°C). Try different brew times and temperatures to find your preference.
  4. Steep for 1-1.5 minutes. All of our teas can be steeped up to 3 times.

Sencha Cold Brew – Mizudashi (水出し) Instructions

Cold-brew Sencha is delicious and refreshing. Simply add 10g of tea leaves to 500 ml of cold water, and let it steep in the refrigerator for 3-4 hours. Cold-brew Sencha can keep in the fridge for 2-3 days.

Origin: Shizuoka, Japan

    Quite grassy and a bit too bitter for me. Perhaps the water temperature was too high.

    This tea is refreshing and bright with a nice astringency. Love brewing a morning cup and getting my antioxidants everyday.

    It’s a pretty good Sencha, good for roughly 2 brews. Seems like the tea leaves are very particular with water temperature and steeping time when brewing. I like to drink it in the morning. Its slightly more astringent for my liking.
