matsuda's sencha


type: green

origin: japan

variety: sencha

caffeine: no-caffeine

price level: $$$$

It has been an honor to be the sole source for the great Japanese Sencha. The life's work of a great tea man and his family, this Sencha has great body and flavor. Dry Leaves: The slender spears are a vivid, forest green which comes from constant attention through out the year. Liquor: In the cup, the tea is an intense yellow green. This is a sign that Matsuda has not taken the shortcut of covering his tea bushes like some of his neighbors. Aroma: Many senchas have similar aromas, however Matsuda's teas smell wonderfully vibrant. There are fresh lemon notes backed by a nice spinachy aroma and the roasted hints of nori seaweed. Caffeine Level: Caffeinated Body: A medium bodied tea that is still mouth-filling and brothy. This comes from the high levels of amino acids. Flavors: If you like the vegetal flavors of Japanese green teas, you are in for a treat! It opens with vegetal flavors that seem like sautéed chard and finish with roasted Nori. The tea's pale sweetness is balanced by a slight bitterness on the back of the tongue. The sweetness endures and evolves long after you've sipped the tea. Brewing Time: 1 to 2 minutes Brewing Temperature: 160° F
