Tea Review: Organic Benifuki Sencha (Kanes)

Organic Benifuki Sencha Leaf (Moga) Autumn
Kanes
Type: Green
Origin: Japan, Shizuoka
Product Description: Not provided.

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

The dry leaves have a light sweet green aroma with notes of seasoned wood.

The golden green infusion has a sweet green aroma with notes of persimmon, a sweet and tart green taste, and a sweet finish.

This was a sample intended for use in tea bags with dry leaves that looked and felt similar to tencha.  A 2-minute steep produced bold results without being bitter, though I preferred the slightly milder results from steeping for 1-1.5 minutes.  The third steeping was especially nice.
