From Indigo Tea Company

Super Premium Sencha is a full flavored, sweet, vegetative tasting green tea. Picked early in the season and from the best leaves at the top of the tea bush.

Remember: keep the temperature low (160-180 degrees), and steep for only 1 or 2 minutes. Japan Sencha has a great lingering aftertaste. The second infusion (1-2 min.) is also delicious.

This is my second batch purchased of this tea and I still enjoy it. Not quite as “buttery” as it seemed the first time around, but my palate has matured since the first tasting note. Still a quality sencha, and will continue to be my go-to choice for a green.

This time my steeping went as follows:

First cup after water was taken off the boil for 2 minutes. Steeped for 1.

Second cup used water cooled after 4-5 minutes, steeped for 3.

Third cup used remaining hot water, allowed to steep until first two cups consumed.

All three steepings were flavorful, the first cup being the “fullest” as you would expect. A very welcome cupping on a cold January evening with cold/sore throat season creeping in.

Not leaving a rating because I know this one has to be better then I’m tasting. It’s good but I feel like its just a bit over steeped. Amazing how seconds can ruin a tea. Anyway, it has the lovely grassy scent. Flavor that is somewhat marine like and toasty but of course more grassy then anything else. My husband thinks it tastes like dirt. I know it’s a required taste.

Brewed from a sample in a mug infuser. I found this tea to be sweet and more grassy than the Chinese greens that I normally drink. Overall a good green tea that is clearly high quality but personally not in the style that I go for when I want green tea.
