Another somewhat floral light steamed Sencha from Mr Hiruma. I can only somewhat describe this as having an aroma and taste profile somewhat like a light TKY along with a classic sencha afternote. Now it also depends on temp. lower temps were less “floral” more pure sencha like.. for me anyway.

Preparation
170 °F / 76 °C 1 min, 15 sec

Actually two teas under the Syansyan name here. Hanayaka & Tsuyayaka. Both are somewhat different from a “regular” sencha in that Mr Hiruma uses an almost oolong like process at first to draw out some floral fragrances to these Asamushi like teas. The Hanayaka being the slightly more floral nosed of the two. you can almsot see the withering of the leaves once they open up some. I didnt know at first how these were made and had found i difficult to compare to other senchas. I learned about the process afterwards as I hasd recieved these Teas at Mr Hiruma’s suggestion.
