From Yunomi

Cultivars: Yabukita, Asatsuyu.
Harvest: May, 2016.
Steaming: The Yabukita is an Asamushi tea, or lightly steamed. This results a leaf that is kept more intact than longer steaming, and therefore results in a clearer, liquid that extracts more slowly from the leaf for multiple steepings. This type of steaming is usually reserved for higher quality leaf.

Meanwhile the Asatsuyu leaf, known for its strong umami flavor, is steamed chumushi, or regular steaming. This adds a delicious umami flavor and aroma to the tea.

This is from a sample I bought from Yunomi. I followed their brewing instructions on the package.

1st brew – 60C at 60 sec. This was so sweet and grassy. A good umami taste to it with no astringency.

2nd brew – 80C at 15 sec – I messed this tea up a little bit. The tea leaves had swelled up in the tea pot and I had trouble pouring it quickly so it went way past the 15 sec. It was still sweet and grassy but had a good astringent bite on the tip of the tongue. That probably would not have been there if I could have poured the tea quickly

3rd brew – I changed up the teapot for a quick pouring gaiwan. I steeping it about 20 or 30 sec. Can’t remember now. The umami flavour of it was fading a bit in this one but it didn’t have that astringent bite the 2nd infusion had. Was still sweet and grassy but a little less.

I found this sencha to be a pretty good quality and would buy more of this.

A high quality sencha. I enjoyed it brewed with the warm water method Yunomi has on their site. Long first steep at low temp led to very deep and strong tasting first cup with succulent, sweet grassy notes and good umami as well. Subsequent steeps were grassy, with echoes of that umami that faded as I got more steeps from this tea. I was able to pull five decent steeps out of it – good longevity for a sencha in my experience.
