A mix of leaf size to this sencha from long tightly rolled leaf to flat and shorter leaf with an emerald green tone and bright lush flecks. The tea soup is a bold yellow hue with a pleasant wood aroma. Medium body with green grassy notes, umami and light astringency to taste. With a medium length sharp, sweet flavour.
The tea has been grown in full sun, unshaded cultivation and harvested in July'22. 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.
