This is my third product hailing from Shizuoka Prefecture. Of the three, it’s probably the second best I’ve tried. First flush buds are steamed to create this lovely, sweet-smelling “behbeh” sencha. Brewing required a less-than-a-minute steep in typical green tea temp water. The result was a foggy, vibrant green liquor akin to a genmai matcha-iri…but without the “suck” factor. It was a very nutty brew, but sweetly so; and not very vegetal at all. A second infusion turned up a citrus note. All in all, a bronze-worthy sencha.

I moonlight as a procrastinating writer and daylight as a trader of jack. I appreciate good tea, good beer, and food that is bad for me. Someday I’ll write the great American novel. And it’ll probably have something to do with tea or beer…or both. In the meantime, I subsist.
