Description: This selection from Kirishima, in Kagoshima prefecture, is crafted from the Yabukita cultivar and usually reserved for the domestic market. The mouth feel has a decidedly brothy character, and the flavor has a classic "umame" aspect. A superb specimen of this style and grade.
Steeping Suggestions: - Leaf Quantity: 2¼ g/cup Water Temp: 180° Steep Time: 3 min.
"A wonderful Sencha, from Spring 2014 (reviewed on 8/27/14), with refreshing seagrass and spinach notes in the cup. I like to brew this one a little shorter then the recommended 3 minutes to get a perfect lustrous yellow-green infusion."
