Asatsuyu Organic Sencha

        Asatsuyu Organic Sencha

        From Kirishima, Kagoshima Japan, a first rate, first flush green tea. Organic sencha "Asatsuyu" is harvested from the first round of young 100% Asatsuyu clone spring leaves. Medium steamed green tea (chumushi), green color with a semi-cloudy clear consistency.  We find this particular asatsuyu to be particularly aromatic and flavorful which is why we chose to include it in our lineup. If you are looking for a healthy, organic, light steamed daily sencha of good value this would be hard to beat. Certified organic JONA/JAS. As with all of our loose leaf green teas, packaged in nitrogen filled bags.

        Price shown includes 100 grams of tea per package

          Hello, O-Cha team! There will be a 2022 version of this tea? I can see this is the only asatsuyu this shop is selling.

          This has the same characteristics as the Asatsuyu Kabusecha Fukujuen i bought from Kyoto Kitsune two years ago: low on sweetness, bitterness and umami, but a unique freshness and just a very mild astringency (at about 60°C). I like this very much and the price for a JAS-certified tea is excellent! I think i'll keep my eyes open also for different brands of the Asatsuyu cultivar.

          Satisfied overall with this tea. The flavor profile does differ from your average sencha. It does indeed reveal "corn-like" flavors, as mentioned by others and is somewhat salty. I wasn't so sure at first, but after adjusting brewing parameters I really like it. It has a good body to it with .8-1 grams per ounce of water.

          I was astonished by the deep green colour of this tea! It has a very refined taste, considerably grassy and vegetal, with a non-excessive astringency. Plus the price is not as high as many other green teas, so there is a great value for money.

          As someone who seeks out marine/oceanic flavors from Japanese tea, this one delivers in a huge way -- salty and fresh, with a hugely satisfying wet leaf aroma. Makes a really tasty cold brew as well!

          I really like the flavour. I bought it based on some of the earlier reviews claiming it was salty, broth-like, had corn-like flavours, etc. and I was not disappointed. Brews quite easily too. I find it fairly unique compared to the other senchas I drink, and I plan to buy it again in the future.

          I purchased this tea to serve as a quick easy brew, during the day. While it is quick and easy, it isn't anywhere near as good as other sencha available. The taste is mellow, a bit salty and vegetal. It barely made a third brew with a big drop in flavour from the first two brews.
          Overall, its not bad for one of those brewing sessions where you want something quickly, but its not very memorable and you won't miss it. For the price, its just OK from my point of view - as with many things in life, you get what you pay for.
