From Yunomi

Premium Sencha Eisai, was named after the Zen priest in the Kamakura period (1192-1333) who brought to Japan the culture of green tea from China. While others before him had brought the plant to Japan, it was Eisai who truly pioneered the drink throughout ancient Japan.

Young tea buds and leaves are picked in early spring (end of April to early May) when they are at their most delicious, to craft an elegant sencha tea.

Time to continue on my Yunomi subscription saga! I have decided I will taste the plain (non-matcha) version first, and then the matcha-fied one. The leaves of this tea (and sencha in general) remind me a bit of pine needles because they’re so long and thin, plus the color is somewhat similar. These leaves are a nice medium to dark green with yellow tones. They smell lovely, rich and creamy with vegetal and grassy notes and a little bit of pineapple tartness.

The steeped aroma is rich and creamy as well with deep steamed veggies. Mm, this has a lovely intense vegetal flavor reminiscent of dark greens, like steamed spinach. There’s also a fresh and sweet grassy taste that adds a tiny bite of pleasant bitterness. The overall texture is quite thick and it fills the mouth nicely. I can taste a hint of creamy dairy throughout the sip, but it shines in the aftertaste and makes me think of matcha lattes. There’s also a little hint of melon, specifically honeydew, and edamame.
