I have finally figured out how to brew this tea! Correct temperature = 75F; steep time = 2 minutes. But the most important part of all is to use the correct filter, which I have determined through trial and error is a metal mesh cone coffee filter basket. I don’t like the result when I use that sort of filter to prepare coffee—it leaves too much silt behind, creating more of a Turkish style brew. However, the mesh size turns out to be perfect for removing the broken particles from brewed sencha, of which there are many in this two leaves and a bud sencha.

Using a more effective filter device to catch all of the smaller pieces of tea produces a much better first infusion! I always liked the subsequent infusions, but before I was finding the first one too bitter. Not anymore!

Glad you found your perfect brew! Sencha is definitely finicky, and it often gets a bad wrap because of that. But it is so worth finding your soft spot, isn’t it? I think it’s also one of the best tea to pair with food…

I so agree with you, TeaFairy! Sencha is my favorite lunchtime tea! I usually drink two glasses right after lunch, in fact.

A bland green tea. Perhaps its because I had their tea bag version. Perhaps the loose leaf would be better but honestly there were no good green notes to pick up from this one. Drinkable but not something I would get again.

I will start by saying right off, I am not a seasoned green tea drinker. I am learning. I found this at a local super market. Price was right, I felt, so I went for it. I will admit, I thought the packaging was ‘cute’, but the bag inside did rip easily and was hard to keep the tea in. I made it work, but it was a little messy opening each time. I have drank this 3 different times. No sugar the first two and sugar the last. Compared to other green teas I have been trying, this flavor was a little off/not consistent with. It was stronger and the color bolder then most I have had. I will note, the last time I brewed it, with the sugar, I also threw in a wildberry hibiscus tea bag (from Tea Forte). I will have to say, I really enjoyed it this way. By itself, it was ok, with the wildberry hibiscus it was really ok.
