drank Takumi - Yame Sencha by teabento
109 tasting notes

Thanks to teabento for this sample. I started by getting a glass kyusu style teapot and brewing up 4 grams for about 30 seconds with 175 water. I didnt heat the pot and I poured over the side of the strainer to not burn the tea. I got a medium green color liquor that is quite thick. I got the aroma of spinach, asparagus, butter, and general vegetal from it.

This is quite a good tea, and the color in the cup is quite dark , though there is only a touch of bitterness in the tea. Its more sweet, vegetal and buttery, what you would expect from a high grade sencha. The leaves before brew was quite small which is usually a good sign. The tea liquor is quite thick and rich and very umami , this is a really nice sencha, which is good since Im on a bit of a japanese tea kick recently.

You will need a basket strainer to strain this, as the tea leaves are quite fine and using a cone strainer it might clog up.

I recommend this tea for anyone who loves thick rich sencha.

Flavors: Asparagus, Butter, Spinach, Sweet, Umami, Vegetal
