Organic Sencha "Asatsuyu"


Score: 4.40. Votes: 5

From Kirishima Japan, a first rate, first flush green tea. Organic sencha "Asatsuyu" is harvested from the first round of young 100% Asatsuyu clone spring leaves. Light steamed green tea (asamushi), green color with a 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

    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.

    Yields a clear, yellowish cup. The aroma has a notable briny, broth-like quality (quite amazing) while the flavor is a nicely balanced combination of vegetal and corn-like flavors. I think this might be my new favorite tea at this price point.
