From Yuuki-cha

This particular organic green tea is a light steamed asamushi sencha hailing from the famous mountainous area of Kirishima in Kagoshima Prefecture. The varietal used to make this organic sencha was Kanayamidori which performs exceptionally well in mountainous regions, and is strong against disease. Organic tea growers that have smaller-scale tea gardens in mountainous areas can therefore produce exceptionally high quality organic sencha at very reasonable prices without the need for pesticides or chemicals of any kind.

This organic sencha doesn’t see heavy steaming during production. Instead, the grower uses lighter steaming and careful rolling in order to create an organic sencha with tightly formed shiny needle-like leaves. We find these production methods show off the characteristics of the Kanayamidori varietal to the fullest. In addition, rolling these high quality mountain grown leaves into needle-like shapes keeps all of the vital vitamins and minerals that the tea bushes have taken up from the lush mountainous soil firmly locked inside the leaf, not to mention keeping those tantalizing Kanayamidori fragrances locked inside too!

The infused tea is a beautiful clear yellow color, the texture is soft and smooth, and of course this organic sencha being made from the excellent Kanayamidori varietal in the mountains possesses those tantalizing sweet fragrant nectarous-like qualities that give an almost fruity and milky mouthfeel!
