From Camellia Sinensis

This is the most rustic tasting Sencha in our catalogue and it comes from Mister Iwata, of the Nara region, who is a small-scale organic producer who does everything himself, from cultivation to final transformation. He picked the leaves in early spring, choosing to avoid the harsh selection process that Sencha teas usually go through. The result is a visually irregular tea of surprising complexity: mild, bright, and thirst-quenching. As for the aromatics, there are vegetal (lamb’s lettuce and spinach), sweet (wheatgrass) and oily (nuts and cashews) notes with a lovely lingering floral (lily) finish.

Quantity of leaf / 250ml of water 1 tea spoon
Infusion Time 3-4 minutes

This has a highly vegetative aroma and taste, but with lingering floral notes that weave in and out of the sip. It is a very refreshing tea with a fair amount of astringency. A bit of nuttiness that introduces itself at the start and wanes toward the end.

A lovely Sencha. I recommend steeping this one at least 3 minutes for full flavor. Any less, and the flavor is a bit too light.

The post-infusion color of this is very vibrant and almost glows! The taste is that of a mellower lettuce with creamy and buttery notes along side. The after taste is somewhat floral. This is a nice Sencha. It’s a different Sencha…but you know what they say…Different is GOOD.
