Slightly drier Sencha with more cereal notes compared to the other Sencha teas from Mr. Henta. This tea dances on the tongue, trading off between these rich steamed vegetable notes and these starchy, sweet cereal notes. The finish is a little bit on the drier side, with a long lasting, mouthwatering astringency towards the end. You may detect this corn sweetness that smooths out the otherwise drier profile of this tea. The tea begins to flirt with this savory umami flavor but it is not quite as strong as a Gyokuro or Kabusecha.

In the second steeping, this tea picks up a lot more minerality, with these sweeter and more starchy notes beginning to dissipate. The tea maintains its dry finish, but the astringency is softened in the second steeping. The savory umami flavor has all but dissapeared, paving the way for a mild hay or summer grass note and a light smooth finish.

Meet the Farmer

This tea comes to us from Mr. Henta, an organic green tea farmer in Kirishima. Mr. Henta is quite knowledgeable about tea plant varieties, also called cultivars. Although his farm is on the smaller side, he grows 8 different types of tea plants. He can then combine these cultivars into different tea blends to get the perfect flavors.

About the Farm

This tea comes from the town of Kirishima, close to Kagoshima. The farm where this tea is grown is surrounded by dense forest and some small mountains, making it a very natural and beautiful setting to grow organic green tea.

How to Brew it

Add 5 grams of leaves to the teapot or strainer and then pour in 150ml to 200ml of water (160 degrees Fahrenheit) and let the tea brew for 1 minute. You can brew the leaves 2-3 more times with the same temperature for 20 seconds each
