    Okuyutaka has a very mild astringency to it that makes the tea balanced and fresh tasting, without being bitter at all, it’s one of the most balanced senchas i had so far and it is how i imagined a great sencha would be : umami vs fresh subtle astringency . One of my favourites this year along with Asatsuyu.

    Very fine sencha with a strong umami on the first brewing (60C°, 1,30 mn). It gives an almost sweet and round taste without bitterness. The second brewing gives something fresh but still gourmand. I like to give it a third brewing for a light and refreshing beverage.

    A great tea.
