This shade-grown Sencha comes to us from the farm of Masudaen in Shizuoka. The most noticeable characteristic of this tea is how sweet it is, with a pleasant note of sweet corn and a hint of grassiness.
The aroma coming off of the freshly brewed leaves is a deep umami followed by fresh spinach and a little bit of cucumber. The tea brews a beautiful golden liquor, and the taste is incredible. Although there is a strong sweet note to the tea, it balances it out with a smooth round flavor and a full-bodied taste. This tea is perfect for the wintertime!
