Mountainous fields favour the production of great teas. Therefore, the hilly region of Shizuoka is an exceptional area to grow high-quality teas. This sencha has eye-pleasing lustrous emerald-green leaves. It is handpicked from high-quality Saemidori cultivar plants, a variety that has come to be greatly appreciated in recent years and is a cross between the famous Yabukita and Asatsuyu cultivars. It has inherited the sweetness and colour of the latter, and the balance and freshness of the former.

This exceptional sencha stimulates the senses with the gentle fragrance of its leaves. Its liquor is an irreproachable green and, finally, its flavour is deep and subtle. Full of sweetness, the liquor is long in the mouth, and complex, and the dulcet tones gradually give way to the savoury hint of beans.

Serving tips

For this tea we suggest trying the Gong Fu-style of brewing. The idea behind it is to use a high tea leaf to water ratio and very short infusions. By using more tea leaves and very short infusions, we extract only parts of the full flavor spectrum. This means that this way of brewing lets you taste the tea in “sections”, which makes for a much more nuanced experience. because the flavor unfolds gradually and since a lot of leaf is used, those flavors are also significantly more intense than in western-style brewing.
