Description

Organic Sencha Satsuma is a lovely daily sencha from Japan’s southern Kagoshima prefecture. Named “Satsuma” after the former Satsuma feudal domain (roughly equivalent to modern day Kagoshima Prefecture). The growing region is known for humid, sub-tropical coastal weather, hot springs, and gorgeous tea gardens.

Sencha tea is Japan’s most famous green tea, it generally refers to the first picking of the season- which is around February in milder climates.

Our Organic Sencha Satsuma’s dry leaf is shiny in appearance, deep-green in color with flecks of pale green stems throughout, and has a heady, sweet pine nut aroma. Once steeped, Organic Sencha Satsuma has a buttery mouthfeel, and a smooth taste that is truly balanced! It is sweet and savory without any strong astringency or bitterness- its taste is light, buttery, vegetal and smooth.

This is a wonderful introductory sencha tea, as it is balanced, light, and welcoming. You may enjoy it hot, or iced.

I really enjoy this new sencha from Tealyra. It is exactly as described- balanced. The balance of sweet and savory lends Sencha Satsuma a full and satisfying taste. Highly recommend it.
