Our Review
The Otsuka family, who supply several of the Japanese green teas, did a great job with this Sencha. Scent of the Mountain comes from Kawane, which is the highest tea region in the massive Shizuoka tea region. Although not as high as Darjeeling or Uva, it is high for Japanese tea gardens. The cooler air helps make for the lovely aroma.
Dry Leaves The leaves are medium in size, maybe a quarter of an inch with some even smaller. The tea is forest green with some lighter stalks included. The tea is between a regular steamed tea and a deep steamed tea, and this accounts for the size of the leaves.
Liquor The liquor is light and clear.
Aroma They do not call it Scent of the Mountain for no reason. This tea has a lovely, beguiling vegetal aroma. Few can resist.
Caffeine Level Caffeinated
Body The body is light. This come from the Shizouka region, and is not deep steamed, so the body is lighter than other Senchas.
Flavors Like the aroma, the flavors are enticing. The vegetal spinachy flavor comes through clearly and strongly.
Brewing Time 1 to 2 minutes
Brewing Temperature 160° F

Don't overbrew!
Average Review:

The first thing I noticed when I opened my sample of this is that its vegetal scent reminded me of Gyokuro, which I love (but is more expensive than I'd like). The first time I brewed Sencha Scent of Mountains, I must have overbrewed it (165 for 2 minutes) because it was pretty bitter. I tried brewing again, this time at 150 for a little over 1 minute, and it was perfect! Lesson learned: don't overbrew and err on the side of underbrewing! Doesn't quite have the same umami finish as Gyokuro, but it still has a delightful vegetal grassy flavor. At half the price, Sencha Scent of Mountains has earned a place in my tea cabinet!
