From Maiko

This is our least manufactured Shincha product with a strong fresh flavor of the harvest. Our recommendation for those customers who appreciate the full herb-like fragrance and taste of freshly harvested Sencha.

This tea probably deserves more than my lazy Steepster tasting notes. And yet…

It’s good. Among the best shincha I’ve had, though not my absolute favourite. It’s also not my favourite Maiko tea, but it’s quality, and I would not be disappointed if I bought it.


What is your favorite?

I don’t tend to have a single favourite of any tea; there are always several in any given day. However, the one that comes to mind right now is Den’s 2010 Houryoku. It really meshed with my tastes.


I really liked that one, too.

This review is for the 2011. This tea was recommended to me by Iannon who also reviewed this tea. For me, the was the best Shincha of 2011, even beating my usual favorite from Ippodo. Most Uji shincha this season seemed to lack umami altogether and was week on sweetness, this one had both. Like all shincha, it was astringent and slightly bitter –in a the good way.

Very Nice Asamushi. Good balance of taste between mellow and astringency. Use low water temps and medium steep times

I thought it displayed excellent flavour purity, lifted fresh aromas and great balance on the palate. Really refreshing as well. One of my favourite Shinchas in 2010, just behind the O-Cha Sae Midori.
