Spring sencha harvested between late April to early May. The Takeo family is one of a few family-operated artisan tea farms who have had their tea certified by the Japanese government.

Yum, this is my kind of sencha. Spinachy aroma, brisk with a nice grassy fresh taste. It picks up a tiny bit of astringency over successive cups which provides a nice contrast to the sweetness. I got 4 good steeps out of this tea, pretty good for a Japanese green tea. The only knock against it may be that it lacks the complexity of better senchas but that’s a fairly minor quibble.

Pleasantly surprised by how good the flavor was considering this is a nearly 2 year old sample.

There are so many senchas at Yunomi it’s hard to pick one. I’ve gone through a few samples from Yunomi over the years and so far Kurihara Imperial Sencha has been my favourite. I don’t think I’ve tried this one so I’ll have to add a sample on my next order.

I know what you mean, there’s a dizzying array of teas on Yunomi and what makes it hard is the flavor difference between Japanese greens is smaller compared to Chinese teas. I usually just go for something I haven’t ordered before that has decent reviews and hope for the best lol

Wow so many teas on their site.

I do love a good sencha!
