From Yuuki-cha

Tenryucha is an organic first harvest deep steamed (fukamushi) sencha that is high grown in a secluded mountainous area of the famous Tenryu tea growing district of Shizuoka. The mountains of Tenryu are blessed with a beautiful environment, pure water, rich soil, plenty of sunshine and deep mist. These elements are vital for producing quality organic sencha, therefore, a number of Shizuoka organic tea farmers ply their trade in Tenryu. Just as vital is formulating compost that will supply the tea bushes with sufficient nutrition. The farmer of this organic sencha has put a great deal of time and effort into formulating compost that really brings out a nice approachable flavor in his tea.
The leaf has been deep steamed, but not on the heavy side, it maintains good appearance. The tea liquor is an attractive light-green to lime-green color which is the norm for high grown organic Yabukita that has been carefully deep steamed, and sun-grown without the use of chemical fertilizers.
The first infusion produces a mouthfeel that is smooth and clean tasting with a sweet, reasonably thick, umami profile. The proceeding infusions remain thick and tasty! You can enjoy 3 infusions, if not more, of very pleasurable, altering flavors

I’ve had this tea for a while now and have never taken the time to put some thoughts behind it, perhaps because my experience with this particular tea has been difficult and somewhat vapid. The occasions on which I brewed this tea properly were sparse and despite persistent cold storage, the tea lost it’s edge over the winter. When lively, it did give an electric yellow-green soup, dry, with lots of grass, kelp and mineral presence. Theanine was particularly strong. With age, it gave a resinous pine character and became more bitter. In the end, this tea may have been too finicky for my attention or experience level and not deep or juicy enough to warrant a re-visit.

The taste was good, but it seems quite strong. I noticed that if I drink it too fast (three cups in an hour) it makes me very anxious. I’ve never had tea do that before.

I was only able to get four 30 second steepings out of it, with most Sencha’s I’ve been able to five 30 second steepings.
