From Pekko Teas

This Fukujyu is in the sencha category and is rated as one of the better export sencha teas. The green leaf, which goes into this
tea, only comes from the first and second flush. Additionally the plucking cycle for this tea during the 1st and 2nd flush is every
4 days. This produces a tea that is mainly comprised of young tender shoots. After plucking the tea is steamed to denature it
and stop any possibility of fermentation. After the steaming process the tea is rolled and pan-fired. (You can see the effects of
the pan firing – the leaves take on a sheeAn). Sencha tea generally yields clear, pale-green cups that carry many of the same
vegetal, grassy notes common to all Japanese teas. Historically this taste was not popular among westerners, but in the past 10
years or so western tastes have begun to embrace the taste and the commensurate health benefits of Japan’s green teas.

I’ve had a lovely day and things just keep getting better. I had lunch with my parents at Bradgate Park (birthplace of Lady Jane Grey and renowned wild deer park) and a small walk. Then I visited a local aquarium centre to get some natural wood for my new fish tank and they had some amazing pieces in stock, I love natural wood. Then as I got home and got the urge to drink some Japanese tea my husband said he would treat me to Yunomi Tea Club for 12 months. :) So to treat him in return I have my new stone and ceramic tea set out and I brewed up some Fukujyu. He likes it but I feel if anything this one is lacking strength…this is a strong tea and I chickened out and brewed it a little weak. Oh well I still have enough left to drink myself into Japanese bliss and prepare the arrival of my new teas.

Sorry Pekko Teas. I was really looking forward to reviewing this tea. I haven’t had a straight sencha in a long time. I opened the pretty golden pouch and removed the fresh looking leaf. I thought it smelled a little off. Steeped it up and sipped. Yep, I accidentally contaminated this. I had a highly fruit flavored sample I opened and put in the drawer. The next morning when I opened drawer all I smelled was fruit. I removed the fruit tea and put it far away. Apparently too late. This was unopened and it still leeched in to it. Be warned to keep strong odor teas away from more delicate teas. Sorry again Pekko, I’m sure this would have been really good.

I really appreciate someone who can admit an honest mistake. That’s probably why I look forward to your reviews. They’re honest

Sil

Oh man… That sucks :(

I agree….with both! Sorry your tea got tainted. It happened to some tea that came in one of my first swaps ever. I keep several of my teas in tins and away from the others because they don’t play nice. Thanks for the warning about the delicate teas needing special protection.

KittyLovesTea sent me this tea in a swap a while ago and while I had had it before, this is the first time I am doing it with patience and a computer nearby.

Not that I got much to say, this is lovely and making me realize how little I know of japanese tea and that i really should get to know it better (but please no seaweed notes, please, no. I fear the sea notes). This is a very smooth but somehow strong japanese tea, that grassy-vegetal note and is just what i was craving.

Must explore more japanese teas.

And thanks kitty, am enjoying this very much!

I offered a Japanese tea to a friend of my mine with sea notes (even salt notes !) and she just cannot physically drink it – she becomes sick !

Sea notes, very very complicated for me. I had excellent japanese tea, though the best japanese tea I have been brewed by japanese people. But a lot of japanese teas, ouch, scary.
