Is this the same as the “Every Day Sencha” because it has the same description. Weirdly I looked up what ‘Sagi’ translates to from Japanese and it means ‘fraud’. Which is interesting. Anyway.
I got 12g of this from my May Sipsby box and thought to try it out this morning. First steep was a little too bitter but I might have left it in too long. Second steep is much more pleasant and just about what I expect from a decent Sencha, pleasantly grassy. Probably going to go for a third and then retire this batch of leaves.
Stonefruit, butter and grass. That’s what I get from this tea.
My partner: “c’est legerement corcé, mais c’est probablement le sweetener”. Translated: “it’s a bit heavy-handed with the flavor, but it’s probably the sweetener”. He doesn’t like his tea sweetened. Oops.
I’m not normally a huge sencha fan, but I could easily drink this one daily.
Next steep, we’ll try it dry (without sweetener) and see what happens.
First Steep: 80C, one minute, stevia sweetened, 2.5 tsp of tea, 8oz water.
MANY thanks to Yannoko Tea on Gabriola Island for sending me this, and a few other great samples to try out in exchange for a review.
