From Yunomi

“Nanadan” Organic Asamushi Okumidori Sencha is a Yunomi collaboration with one of our oldest, most trusted customers, Macha Tea Company in Madison, Wisconsin. We tested dozens of candidates from our extensive supplier network to finally find this delicious, lightly steamed, beautifully shaped premium sencha.

This sencha uses an extra early April harvest of tea leaves shaded for a few days for a splash of umami, and is lightly steamed to preserve the delicate needle shape that can be obtained only from leaves as young as these.

The okumidori cultivar has come under the spotlight recently among Japanese tea experts here in Japan and abroad. It produces a deep green color and a naturally sweet flavor.

Brewed this tea following package directions by steeping it like gyokuro style at low temperatures for the first steep and then like Sencha at higher temperature. First steeping tasted like kabusecha, earthy raw grass taste but mellower and without any umami. The next 3 steeps were citrusy with notes of wheat grass, kale, and yuzu.

This tea falls into the earthy category which I find hard to get into. It’s not terrible, but lacks the freshness and sweet grassy flavor of a good sencha.
