This organic green tea hails from Kirishima Kagoshima and is of course harvested from the first round of young leaves. Light-steamed (chūmushi) Organic Sencha Meiryoku has a lovely green color.  Medium aroma, somewhat low astringency, this organic sencha is nicely balanced, easy to make, and easy to drink - one of our best aquasitions of the year.  As with all of our loose leaf green teas, packaged in nitrogen flushed packaging.

Price shown includes 100 grams of tea per package

    76 C water, 7 g/300 mL

    Steep 1: 1 min. Asparagus soup with edges of baked lemon. Buttery. Slight astringency. Nice aromas of fresh grass and dried citrus peel.

    Steep 2: 30 sec sweet fresh cut grass. Slightly nutty

    Steep 3: 1.5 min More savory with seaweed aromas

    Steep 4: 15 min. Similar to 3. Slightly more astringent. This was a stress test.

    Consumed leaves at the end with yuzu/ soy sauce. Light nutty flavor. Very tender and pleasant!

    Light and airy tea high midway through third steeping.

    Not bad at all when brewing parameters are ideal. I was able to get a decent sweet taste with hardly any astringency. Seems to be good for at least 3 steepings before most of the flavor is gone. It's not as intense, flavor-wise, as some others, but for the price it's reasonable. I've had teas that cost more that I wouldn't buy again, but I would actually try this one again, especially at the first of the season.
