Tea Review: Uji Premium Sencha (Sazen Tea)

Uji Premium Sencha
Sazen Tea
Type: Green
Origin: Japan, Kyoto Prefecture, Uji
Product Description: Not provided.

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

The dry leaves have a rich, nutty, and nori-like aroma.

The bright green infusion has a rich and savory, nutty, and buttery aroma and taste with mild astringency and a long sweet finish.

The second infusion is bolder, though not overwhelmingly so, with a lighter and sweeter third infusion.  While this sencha was ideal for my preferences without adjustment, you can expect good results and more infusions using more leaf and reducing the steeping time to 1-1.5 minutes.

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