From Yuuki-cha

An excellent organic daily sencha green tea from the old traditional town of Yabe in Kumamoto Prefecture offered at a wonderful cheap price of just $12! Due to it being both first flush and organically cultivated it really is an excellent choice for those looking to gain all of the health benefits of green tea at an affordable price! Made from a blend of Yabukita and Tsuyuhikari it is sweet, rich, and has good depth of flavor, yet is light and refreshing at the same time!

About a month ago I purchased Yuuki-Cha’s Organic Kumamoto Jo Sencha for the second time. As was the case last year I was not disappointed with my purchase.

Dry Leaf:
The leaves have a very grassy aroma (as is expected with a good sencha) and were mostly whole (unlike Yuuki-Cha’s Yame sencha that was mostly dust). An ordinary Kyusu should be able to filter our virtual all of the leaves (my Tokoname Kyusu worked liked a charm).

Steeping:
I steeped this Sencha three times. At first I steeped the tea for a little over a minute. The tea tasted wonderful and had a vivid green color. It seems that this particular sencha can withstand a longer than average steep better than most Japanese greens.

Taste:
This Kumamaoto Jo has a very subtle and pleasant taste. The grassy flavor was sweet and not overpowering. The second and third cups were still very flavorful but less pronounced than the first steep.

Overall the Kumamoto Jo is a great deal for a premium sencha that does not disappoint.
