From Yunomi

This sencha was crafted with Tsuyuhikari, a cultivar known for its sweeter flavor profile, by the Shimizu family of Suizawa, Mie Prefecture. This particular production lot comes from a new tea field (planted 2015), and was given the name Ubugoe 産声, meaning “the cry of a newborn”.

I was very impressed with this Tsyuhikari sencha green tea from. Unshaded, harvested on Apr 25, 2019, and more than just single origin, but single cultivar / single field, the tea leaves are beautifully shaped needles…not all perfectly straight, but fine, shiny leaves indicative of an early young leaf harvest, with little powder (refined well).

Flavor notes: Grassy, but sweet and buttery taste, little bitterness but an interestingly astringent aftertaste.

This one of the better teas I got from Yunomi. The leaves are beautiful with a deep green colour and have an aroma of pine, green apple and green beans, complemented by yeast in a preheated pot. Wet leaves, on the other hand smell of freshly cut grass and cream.

The taste is well balanced and crisp with nutty bitterness, almost fruit-like sweetness and a light citrusy finish. First infusion is more similar to a gyokuro with strong umami, bready notes, and sweet aftertaste. Later infusions are more grassy with more bitterness as well.

Mouthfeel is very thick and unusually creamy for a sencha. It is active and warming in the throat, very nice overall.
