New for 2018, Shizuoka Sencha Tsuyuhikari is a hybrid of Asatsuyu and Shizuoka 7132 cultivars. A first rate green tea, it was harvested from the first round of young spring leaves. Deep steamed, this green tea was grown in Kakegawa tea growing district in Shizuoka Prefecture. Very green and very thick. has a somewhat more pronounced grassy aroma and taste compared with the average deep steamed green tea and the taste remains on the palate for an extended time.

An overall easy brewer (a teapot for fukuamushi-cha is recommended, however). Be sure to not brew too hot, for too long, or with too much leaf. As with all of our loose leaf green teas, freshly packaged in nitrogen filled bags.

Price shown includes 100 grams of tea per package.

    Pretty typical, good tasting, deep steamed tea. While the best flavors come and go with the first couple steepings, I've been able to extract a nice color past 3 or 4 steepings. While making sure to not brew too hot or too long, with too much tea leaf, I combine the first and quick second brew; this results in a deep green flavorful tea, with a hint of sweetness and not much astringency at all. I was hoping for a very potent grassy/vegetal taste, but that seems to be rare. I'll be experimenting more to see how I can get the absolute best taste.
