Tea Review: Sencha (Sugimoto America)

Sugimoto America
Type:  Green
Origin:  Japan, Shizuoka
Product Description:  Premium Sen Cha mainly made of young tea leaves harvested in spring. Packaged in a resealable foil pouch, this economical-size tea package can be enjoyed by tea drinkers for daily use.  For all of our Sen cha, we use traditional steaming process called "Fukamushi (Deep Steaming)" to preserve the flavor, fragrance, and color.

Temperature: 175° F
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 2 minutes

The dry leaves have a sharply green aroma with salty, smoky, and nutty elements.

The infusion is golden green with a savory aroma that reminds me of toasted pine nuts.  The taste is toasty, green, nutty, and moderately astringent with a long green finish.

While I enjoyed the natural astringency, I might recommend steeping this tea at a lower temperature for milder, sweeter results.

This tea was provided as a free sample without guarantee of a review.
