From Den's Tea

Chiran is the name of a town in Kagoshima prefecture in the southern island of Kyushu. Chiran has a warm and humid climate where deep mists contribute to this tea’s flavor. The soil in this area is unique because it is made of volcanic ash from the active volcano, Sakurajima, making the soil particularly good for tea growing. Den’s Tea Fukamushi Sencha Chiran is also unique because it’s made of special tea cultivar called Asatsuyu. Asatsuyu is often described as “like Gyokuro” even though it is Sencha.

oh MY! what a step back into the world of sencha this is for me! i’d been off in a thicket of shou puerhs and fragrant oolongs and then after i broke my kyusu and had to order another i ended up here, with a sample packet of this delightful tea at my disposal. Used the recommended brewing, am just about done with my second cup of delicious spring seasonal grassy lushness. recommend this one!
