A tiny foil container of an outstanding grapefruit sencha was brought to us from Japan by a friend. We hoarded it, worshipped it, and ultimately finished it off.
Months went by and Candice kept bugging me to create a Zhi version. So I did. And it is pretty darn good if I may say so myself.
We took our tip-top grade organic sencha we get from Japan (which would not normally be a blending base, the second grade is used for that), added organic grapefruit extract and organic pink grapefruit peel.
The result: a delightful top note that sits delicately over the rich grassiness of the sencha. Perfect, subtle, intoxicating aromatics. Very addicting. Currently Jeffrey’s (me) favorite green tea, by far. Our first five pound batch hits the shelves on July 1, 2011.
