Description

Sencha teas are Japan’s most popular, they are a variety of steamed green tea that is usually bright, grassy, fresh and astringent. Fukujyu Sencha is considered to be one of the better exported sencha teas, it is known for its refreshingly sweet and very light grassy taste; its bright green leaves are harvested from only the first and second flush. Fukujyu Sencha is characteristically light, with very little grassiness, it is sweet and slightly astringent, but its oceanic notes are what sets it apart. It has savory seaweed, nori-like properties that are gentle and complex, but add to its wonderful tea taste!

This is how to do it:
1-1.5 TSP or 1 BAG
8oz / 200ml
175F / 80°C
1.5 - 2 min

This is delicious. I am very impressed with this Japanese sencha. I brewed 6.1g in 550ml of filtered water at 61c for 2.5 minutes and it made a superbly smooth and rich cup of tea. It had more than enough going on to keep the experience interesting for two full steepings.

Will gladly purchase again and I can see this easily sliding into my rotation.

ps this is hardly a mouthful of sea water. this is a green tea.

It’s ok to good, I wouldn’t buy it again. It doesn’t have much deep ness and complexity, just smelled seaweed, and tasted seaweed. When I review these teas I brew them gungfu cha style. Maybe go for the more expensive sencha.

When I read the word "oceanic" in the description, for some reason I thought that this tea would have an interesting umami taste, or be earthy. However, I guess "oceanic" truly means just that -- imagine walking into the ocean with a mug and scooping out a cup for yourself and then drinking it. Oceanic indeed. As another reviewer said, this note does subside with subsequent steepings but it is quite overwhelming during the first one.

Perfect everyday tea..slight sweetness and mildly astringent well balanced but as others have said the oceanic /nori like attributes are what sets it apart which is the reason I reorded a larger size its a great tea for morning or evening meals that won't break that bank
