Our Review
The Kaburagi family has sold to Americans for over 110 years. They are well known in Tokyo and throughout Japan as a preeminent supplier of tea. They supply this pleasant Sencha from central Shizuoka. To keep the price somewhat reasonable, we choose teas from the middle of the season. John Harney has drunk this tea everyday for over 10 years. He values the pleasant flavor and the antioxidants.
Dry Leaves The leaves from this tea are medium lime green color. Since this is a traditional sencha (futsumushi), the leaves are more identifiable than they would be if deep steamed (fukamushi).
Liquor The liquor is a medium green, not as intense as the Ichiban. The green is a truer green than the Bancha that tends towards yellow.
Aroma Our Japanese Sencha has pleasant spinachy notes, with slight roast flavors that are similar to toasted bread.
Caffeine Level Caffeinated
Body As a mid-season Sencha, this green tea has good levels of amino acids and more body than most green teas.
Flavors This is a very pleasant green tea. The mild vegetal flavors with light accents of citrus and toast make this a tea that can handle all your moods - every day.
Brewing Time 1 to 2 minutes
Brewing Temperature 160° F

My Favorite Everyday Tea
Average Review:

This is the first sencha I eber tried, and it still remains my favorite for everyday drinking. It's vegetal, smooth and buttery. Everything you could ask for in a sencha. I have tried many different senchas, and I promise you that this is THE best balance of flavor and affordability you can find. Like the descripition says, this is truly a great everyday green.
