This sencha is a blend of the cultivars Asatsuyu, Okumidori and Saemidori. From these three cultivars, it inherits a beautiful sweetness, a round smoothness and a mouth-watering grassy note towards the end. The liquor of this tea is a light yellow, but is a bit thicker, similar to the mouthfeel of a Gyokuro. Even though this tea has a strong taste profile to it, it carries no bitterness at all. You may notice notes of sweet corn, fresh cut grass and a nice citrusy note in the end.

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
