A delicious classic Sencha, long and slender needles rich forest green tones with verdant flecks, giving a full and pleasant buttery sweet aroma, the damp leaves open with a sweet gentle marine aroma. The tea soup is a clear vibrant green with a thick body but gentle experience. Smooth and light umami flavour - well balanced and very easy drinking.
This Sencha has been grown using the Yabukita cultivar planted in full sun, unshaded cultivation and harvested in May. Then undergone light steaming, rolling and drying process.
Wazuka is a tea town in the southeastern area of Kyoto Prefecture. Wazuka has been a tea growing location since the Kamakura period as a main producer following Uji tea processing methods.
