What a sencha!! The freshness of this tea is worth the effort and extra expense — I was blown away by the full flavour profile, and the smooth, slightly buttery taste. The leaves themselves are beautifully long, and the aroma will blow you away. I’m thrilled that DAVIDsTEA is bringing this “Garden to Cup” series in; being able to try teas that have just been harvested like this is a true treat that I’ve only ever seen at the pricier, high-end tea shops before.
The name is curious…Yabu-kita…“ruined north”? Is it giving a nod to the 2011 disaster? I wish I knew!
If you’re a sencha-lover, do yourself a favour and go pick up a bag before this sells out!
