Tenryu Misakubo Shincha
Light Steamed 100% HANDPICKED asamushi sencha!! We especially chose Tenryu Misakubo because of the obvious high standards that have been attained to in both cultivation and processing. Authentic handpicked light steamed sencha grown and cultivated naturally like this one are very rare in Japan these days because of the time and effort that must be given by a dedicated farmer to achieve the expertise that is required to produce teas of this nature.
An incredibly delicate tea that is smooth and richly sweet with a liquor clarity that is superb. It has a balance and purity of flavor that clearly sets it apart making it a real treat for all the true tea connoisseurs out there that never go without analyzing the purity and cleanliness of the tea that they are drinking. Tenryu Misakubo really is a true purist’s delight embodying both elegance and grace!
