Tea Review: Eto Sencha Saru (Fukujuen)

Eto Sencha Saru
Fukujuen/福寿園
Type: Green
Origin: Japan, Uji
Product Description: Saru(monkey) is the symbol of the year 2016 according to the oriental zodiac.
Enjoy the good fortune tea!


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

The dry leaf aroma is bold grassy green and nutty with an underlying aroma of seasoned wood.

The infusion is pale green with an aroma and flavor that is fresh-cut green, sweet, and buttery with mild astringency.

This sencha is very approachable with a second and third steeping producing sweeter aroma and taste, a mellowing of astringency, and no loss in color.
