This is the tea that turned to on to Japan. This shipment has really nice complexity and balance. It is a blend of a few primo varietals. Nice umami, nice color, nice chi. Mr. Nishi-san is one of my heros.
Nishi 1st Flush Sencha
Nishi 1st Flush is a light-steamed “asamushi” type sencha from the “first flush” harvest of spring when the highest quality tea is produced. It’s refreshing and brisk with a pleasant bitter-sweetness and greenish-golden infusion color. Its unique flavor comes from a special blend of unique Japanese tea bush varietals cultivated for us by our friend Nishisan in Japan’s Kagoshima prefecture.
