From The Tao of Tea

We sourced only a limited quantity of this high grade sencha.

Japan produces almost exclusively green tea, the majority of which is sencha. However, the range and breadth of sencha grades and styles is enormous ranging from coarse, everyday green tea to exquisite masterpieces of the Japanese tea-making art. Gold Sencha is a premium grade, First Flush sencha produced with the utmost artisanal skill in early spring.

Steamed Green Tea
Sencha is produced through a uniquely Japanese tea-making process. The fresh leaf is steamed immediately after harvest without any withering. This preserves the tea’s fresh, vivacious, green quality and bright, chlorophyll-rich color.

Mmm…japanese tea. So yums. As much as I enjoy Japanese green tea, I have only small sample sizes of them from swaps. I should fix this. :)

As for this tea, it’s slightly oceanic, which I greatly enjoy. It’s green and fresh and toasty. And the liquid is a nice yellowish green. Very enjoyable.

I got Batrachoid’s package today!! I was so excited to try everything =)
It sounds like this tea is a shincha (first harvest sencha). It’s AMAZING. Somehow, “gold” is a good description of it. It’s not steamy or vegetal like most sencha, but rather somewhat nutty and roasted. Great taste, I really like it.
I like Tao of Tea’s new site by the way!
