From Silk Road Teas

Our Sencha is organically grown and made in Fujian Province. The leaves are long and emerald green-flecked with shades of lighter green. Cups to a light golden yellow infusion with a robust and grassy taste. Sencha needs to be brewed carefully with water that is not too hot. Steep lightly at 165–175 for 2 minutes.

The leaves are varied shades of deep green, with a sweet yet toasted grassy aroma. There is little detail, as the leaves are very light and very flat, which is kind of a disappoint, but they are full leaves nonetheless.

Steeping brings out more of that nice sweet toasted aroma, overpowering the grassy scent, which is less of a disappointment. The brew is a nice light jade color, with pieces of leaves floating to the bottom.

I like the subtleness of the grassy flavor, appropriately pulling to the backseat, allowing the sweet toasted flavors to come through.

There isn’t really much else to this tea. It is a very toasty green tea, with subtle notes of grass, but sweet, and toasted.

Subtle grassiness. Cough syrupiness. Medium green in color. Not much on the nose. It’s an ok tea to slurp in the afternoon as a little pick-me upper.

I steep this between 20-30 seconds in low temp water. 3-4 minutes below boiling.

I’m not wondering why this tea isn’t available anymore. It was probably good when it was purchased in China, but this far down the road it isn’t anything to write home about.
