From Yuuki-cha

This particular organic sencha is made from first flush Yabukita leaves and is a light steamed asamushi sencha which we entitled ‘Kirishima No Kaori’ (Fragrance of Kirishima) because it has a beautiful fresh tea fragrance of the mountains. Its liquor is a clear bright yellow color which is indicative of a sencha that has been lighter steamed. It’s soft tasting, yet also has wonderful rich complexities with a lively refreshing citrus-like aftertaste. Little astringency, perfectly smooth, it’s an exceptionally fine example of high quality organically cultivated lighter steamed sencha from the mountains of Kirishima, Kagoshima, Japan.

Hello Steepster! Hope you all have been well. It’s been a minute since I’ve posted. Life has been a bit hectic lately and on top of everything, I’ve started a new course for work which has been consuming most of my free time. I’ve barely had time to even browse Steepster let alone log anything since I feel guilty whenever I’m doing anything online besides studying. Anyway, tea drinking is still going strong and with my backlog starting to grow, I decided to sneak in a few notes.

This is another sencha from my Yuuki-Cha haul this summer. It’s a fragrant, light steamed sencha that presents a broad spectrum of flavors. Depending on the way it’s brewed, it can offer the typical spinachy, vegetal green tea flavor or it can become gyokuro-like with rich umami and oceanic elements. Smooth, medium bodied, and clean tasting with notes of grass/kelp and cannelloni beans.

Flavors: Grass, Seaweed, Spinach, Umami

Welcome back!

Welcome back! We’ve missed you.

what do you use to steep green teas? Would you recommend buying a kyusu? If so, porcelain or unglazed?


Thanks, can never stay away from this site for too long :)

@Evol Ving Ness, I switch between a bunch of different brewing vessels but I prefer a shibo or easy gaiwan for most greens. It’s easier to clean than a kyusu IMO, When steeping grandpa style, I use a tea glass with a built-in filter (a little crescent shaped piece attached to the top of the glass with tiny holes).

I prefer glazed as you can brew any kind of tea in them but it all depends on what yoiu’re plan to steep and how.

LuckyMe: I know that feel. Indeed very busy times, but I can’t run away from Steepster. Good luck with everything you have to do and finish :)

Evol Ving Ness

Thank goodness and thank you.

It’s good to have you back. A couple of the teas which you posted about, which are not coming to mind at the mo, have become great favourites. Haha, funny that I can’t recall the names of the teas, but I can recall that they were introduced to me by you.


@Evol Ving Ness that’s awesome. I’ve discovered so many amazing teas thanks to recommendations on this site so it’s great to be able to pay it forward :)

Evol Ving Ness

Yeah, we’re all a bunch of enablers. :)
