Shizuoka Tsuyu Sencha

In stock: 19

Origin: Japan


Shizuoka Tsuyu Sencha is a premium quality first harvest sencha that comes from Shizuoka, Japan. This is one of the finest organically grown sencha teas that we have ever had the pleasure of offering at Tealyra! Shizuoka Tsuyu Sencha is very fragrant deep-steamed sencha that is both mellow yet rich and complex tasting. The brilliant, dark green, needle like leaves of this incredible specialty deliver a fragrant aroma, translucent cup and a flavor profile that is surprisingly full bodied yet light, and umami sweet on the finish.


Japanese green tea leaves
Caffeine Level:
Use 1-1.5 tsp of tea per 8oz/200ml of water. Heat water to 175F/80C and steep for 1.5-2 minutes.

I love the flavour of this tea, but it is so fine it is almost like Matcha! This is my first time trying this particular Sencha (I have tried 2 others) and none of them were quite as much like a powder, they both had leaves that you could leave to dry out for multiple times. Because it is so fine, the tea is not clear, very cloudy. But as I said, wonderful taste.

One of my new favorite sencha teas! I find the flavor to be a good mix of sweetness, umami and grassy flavors. The 2nd infusion is milder but enjoyable too. A good value!

I did not love the first brew, brewed 1 1/2 minutes, taste was somewhat astringent. However, 2nd and 3rd were wonderful (brewed 2 minutes each). Slightly sweet with a great mouth feel.

This is my new favorite organic Japanese green tea. I'm usually drawn to gyokuro teas, but the grassy, smooth flavor and beautiful green color of this tea is my white whale: a tea that tastes, smells and looks like my first green tea in Atami, Japan. I get three steepings out of every teaspoon. Very happy.

This tea has overshadowed my prior sencha favorites. Don't let it steep too long but do enjoy the differences in 2nd and 3rd steepings. Grassy, fresh, lively.
