Tea Review: Sencha Saga (B. Fuller's Mortar & Pestle)

Sencha Saga
B. Fuller's Mortar & Pestle
Type: Green
Origin: Japan, Shizuoka Prefecture
Product Description: A high grade Japanese tea from Shizuoka (Tranquil Hills) Prefecture. The dark, shiny leaves produce a strong, sweet, grassy flavor with a perfect balance of umami and nutty, rice notes

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

The dry leaves have a sharp green aroma with hints of seasoned wood and minerals.

The green-yellow infusion has an aroma of green grass, nuts, and minerals.  The taste is vine green and lightly savory.  

Short steeps provide the best results with an increase in astringency after the first steeping.
