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 Tsuyu Hikari Sencha from Shizuoka

    • Rare!
    • Unique!

    Shizuoka Sencha Tsuyu Hikari - Defininetly one of the best sencha green teas we have ever tried.  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.  Perfectly shaped beautiful green needles and great balance, it has a rich, silky mouthfeel.  As with most light steamed green teas, some of the taste is subtle but this one has a very nice, pronounced umami and lingering aftertaste.  Frankly speaking, this tea is a masterpiece assamushi green tea.

    We have obtained a limited supply of this fantastic green tea.  It was expensive to purchase, but it was so good we simply could not pass it up.   We have decided to make it available in 50 gram packages so that more of our customers will have the opportunity to try a sencha of this calibre.

    We have no idea how long this tea will last but probably not long. 

    Price shown includes 50 grams of tea per package

    Note: This tea is eligible for purchase with and receiving bonus points but because of it's rarity and our limited supply, it is not eligible for 10% shincha discounts.

  • 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.

    Organic Kabusecha Sae Midori

    • Organic
    • Rare!

    This green tea comes from Kirishima City, Kagoshima and is of course harvested from the first round of young leaves.  Organic Sae Midori Kabusecha is grown for 14 to 20 days under 45% shade before harvest giving it taste characteristics of both sencha and gyokuro. This light steamed (asamushi) version comes from the Sae Midori clone and it is somewhat rare to be processed in kabusecha form.  A sweeter, less astringent taste than regular sencha, it has a lovely green color and is quite flavorful. Brew as you would for sencha. 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!
