I have tried both the Tenjo and Tenryu... I will hold back my comments on the Tenjo as I continue to taste and experiment with it.
However, the Tenryu has been easier to brew and review so without further ado . . .
The leaves are very long and mostly whole; I have only seen a few teas with this nice of an appearance - a few of the asamushi (futsumushi) teas from Thes du Japon, and a few from Den's tea / SDS Japan.
They dry leaves emit a nice, refreshing, flowery aroma as well, which becomes more pronounced upon hitting the warm teapot.
By the 4th steep, they open up huge! This is one of my favorite aspects of asamushi.
The aroma of the tea itself is incredible; if I knew flowers better, I could describe the specific varieties and floral notes, but lets just say the aroma is as intense as perfume. If this were a flavored or scented tea, it would almost make me think they over-scented it. However, being a pure sencha shows, to me at least, how well it is made.
Based on the aroma and appearance of the leaves once open, it reminds me strongly of the micro-fermented sencha by Hiruma (from Thes du Japon). For those of you who've had O-cha's version, I wouldn't be surprised if there is similarity between this tea and the Hana no Kaori LE that was released in the last year once or twice.
I'm certain this tea isn't purposely micro-fermented the way Hiruma does it (with special UV lights and all!), but the fragrance has been similarly developed.
Anyway, I will review the Tenjo at some point later... this has been a great NOTTI (both selections) and I look forward to more.
