Light Steamed Green Tea

light steamed green teaAsamushi Sencha The green teas in this category, known in Japanese as "asamushi-cha", or light steamed green teas, are steamed for a shorter period of time than your typical sencha. The period in which any green tea is steamed depends on various characteristics such as where it was grown, elevation, etc. Like deep steamed green tea, not all green teas are suitable for light steaming.

  • Light steamed Yumesuruga sencha from Shizuoka

    • Rare!
    • Unique!

    Unfortunately, this fantastic green tea has sold out for 2020 :(

     

    This light steamed sencha green tea is produced by a well-known tea master located in Tenryu, Shizuoka and of course is harvested from the first round of young leaves. This is a rather rare batch and probably won't last very long.  Yumesuruga is a somewhat new clone which was registered 2014 and has only becoming available recently.  This sencha was harvested from three year old young tea bushes, it's leaves are beautifully twisted needle shaped.  It has a crispy nutty overtone, rich, silky mouthfeel.  As with most light steamed green teas, some of the taste is subtle but it has a nice umami and lingering aftertaste.  This tea is a masterpiece light steamed green tea.

  • Sae Midori Organic Asamushi Sencha

    • Popular!
    • Unique!

    This green tea comes from Kagoshima and is of course harvested from the first round of young leaves.  When we offered this for the first time in 2017, we knew we would buy this one as soon as we tried it and sure enough it had sold out by December. Organic Sae Midori asamushi is a light steamed green tea of the Sae Midori clone and is somewhat rare to be processed in the light steamed form. This product is both flavorful and aromatic, much more so than the typical deep steamed Sae Midori. If you are a light-steamed green tea fan, you should really enjoy this one.  As with all of our loose leaf green teas, packaged in nitrogen flushed packaging.

Verkaufsschlager

Loose leaf asamushi sencha will usually have large leaf particles and are suitable to be brewed in all types of Japanese green teapots, including those with ceramic "sesame" filters. When brewed, light steamed green tea tends to have a clear, light appearance, usually a bit on the yellowish side, subtle flavors, but it is often quite aromatic.  Asamushi can also be somewhat astringent depending on the individual tea. If you've never tried a light steamed green tea, we do have the best in what Japan has to offer, try one today!
