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.
This tea comes to us from the farm Henta Seicha, a tea field owned by Mr. Henta. We met Mr. Henta and toured his fields in March and learned so much about the methods he uses to judge the quality of a tea. We also got to taste a few of the teas he produced and this was one of our favorites!
