3 Reviews Write a Review
This organic Sencha offering comes from Kagoshima prefecture in southern Japan. Crafted from the Saemidori cultivar, the emerald green leaves produce a pale yellow-jade liquor with a clean aroma and rich buttery quality. With a fresh savory flavor reminiscent of steamed spring greens, the cup feels soft and silky on the palate. A smooth, lingering finish completes an outstanding tea experience.

  • Velvet and Delicate Spring

  • This one blew me away. A very pretty, delicate aroma that is more complex than one would think at first whiff. More floral than purely stewed field greens only though these are there, slightest note of cured hay. Beautifully velvet mouthfeel. Finishes cleanly sweet.

  • A 2-min. brew produces a faint suggestion of sweetness followed by crisp, clean umami and green, reminding me of fresh asparagus. Buttery texture, and finishes with a pleasing lingering mild astringency. The effect is similar to the "whoosh" you get with mint. A 3-min. brew brings out more of the green notes. This one is a winner!
  • up front umami, smooth, rounded mouth feel

  • Lisa – CA – October 09, 2019
  • Rich umami scent with grassy notes, clear bright green liquor. Smooth, rounded, buttery mouth-feel. Steeps twice with fairly robust flavor, third time for lighter flavor more like a white. Minimal to no bitterness/astringency brewed at 155-165F. If it has flaws I can't taste them. Reordered after received as a gift.
