Aroma & Taste
The first thing you may notice – even before taking a sip – is the aroma.
It’s the greenish fresh scent of the tea leaves. You’ll find it has the freshness and rawness in the leaves as if they were just freshly picked.
You’ll taste the rich balance – with the ‘Umami’ and sweetness, but also the pleasurable astringent and bitter tastes as well.
A delicately sweet, herbaceous aroma emanates from the long, flat, naturally dark emerald tea leaves.
The medium-light body of its infusion results in a slightly sweet flavor that endures long after you’re done sipping the tea.
It is subtly balanced, sweet and salty, with a flavor profile reminiscent of fresh cut grass and seaweed.
2 tsp sencha leaves
2 cups of water
To make sencha tea, add the leaves to a teacup. You can pack the leaves into a strainer, but in Japan, allowing the leaves to steep freely is preferred, providing a richer flavor to the tea.
Heat the water, but do not allow it to boil. If the water is too hot, it will cause the resulting tea to be bitter. Likewise, if the water is lukewarm, it produces a hearty and more wholesome flavor.
Pour the water over the tea leaves in the cup and allow them to steep for 1-2 minutes.
Allow the tea to cool for 1-2 minutes before serving.
Pour small quantities of tea into each cup as that will help you get the best blend of strength and flavor.
Ensure that the tea is consumed until the very last drop from the teapot.
If even a single drop is left behind it will cause the additional brews using the same tea leaves to taste bad.
A Small Tips
Most people leave this step out whenever they make any type of tea, but it’s actually pretty important to the best cup of tea.
Tea should be enjoyed at exactly the proper temperature.
When hot water is poured into a cold cup it will begin to cool quickly, which doesn’t allow the blend to steep properly.
Make sure to use fresh and good quality water which doesn’t contain lots of minerals.
keep it in a cool & dry place.
