From Yunomi

Haruo Ogose’s tea is 100% naturally grown, without pesticides or fertilizers.

He explains that ‘when the tea is cultivated without fertilizer, the amount of amino acid tends to decrease. As a result, the flavor becomes mild and simple. But this is the true, natural flavor of sencha.’

Taste the difference with Haruo Ogose’s organic sencha!

The description for this tea claims it is simple and mild in flavor due to the lack of fertilizer in the growing process. Regardless of why, I do concur that this tea is rather simple. That isn’t a knock against it in any way. It’s an easy one to drink. Crisp and tasty notes of grass and spinach. Also some astringency balancing out the sweeter flavors mentioned above. Even when I gave it a longer first steep, it didn’t get the depth that some other Japanese greens will have, but it also didn’t get unpleasantly astringent or bitter. A nice offering from Yunomi and Ogose…simple, to the point, easy to drink and understand. The tea I’m drinking along with the football game tonight (yaay football’s back!)
