Ratings and Reviews of Organic Sayamakaori Sencha
Matt SinforosaFeb 9, 2016, 01:06I really enjoyed this tea. I prefer a deeper steamed tea with a stronger flavor but this tea actual was quite flavorful. Grassy, earthy, and slightly sweet. If brewed for more than a minute it gets a little bitter.
Cameron LewisJun 4, 2015, 10:43Beautiful aroma and rich flavour. Clean and refreshing, herbal-grassy and sweet. I almost always get some degree of bitterness, but it seems to work well with the overall character of the tea. Hot water makes it go bitter very quickly. Pouring slowly to keep the tea relatively clear reduces the bitterness.
I can get five good steeps if I keep the second and third short. Great value.
Theo WilsonMar 5, 2014, 00:38Wonderfully fragrant, refreshing, subtle nutty sweetness. This tea is best enjoyed with very short 2nd 2 - 5 second steeps. It's a very comforting and easy going tea, and being organic, well worth the price.
Also, I recommend doing a google maps search of the tea garden (Tokoji temple) written in Chinese characters on the pack. It's a quaint hill side rural area outside of the main town.
