Kagoshima Sencha Yutaka Midori "Kaoru Supreme LE"
From the first harvest and currently in shincha form, a very special sencha from Kagoshima prefecture located at the southern tip of Japan. Similar to our classic Yutaka Midori, we came across this particularly good supply of an unusually high quality Yutaka Midori and knew we had to offer this to our customers. Most likely, this will remain a “limited edition” green tea as supplies for this appear to be limited.
Because of the cool weather late into the growing season, 2010 was a challenging year for high quality green tea, but we can say without reserve that this product is near the top of what we have tried so far this year. An exceptionally “green” green tea, we are pleased to be able to offer a green tea of quality to our customers. We urge you to compare this sencha against any of the others available on the internet for that nice emerald green color and wonderful taste. Try some today!
