Regular price $24.00 $0.00 Unit price per

Crafted from yabukita, one of the earliest cultivars registered by Japan's agricultural research center (NARO) in 1953, this tea is well balanced: strong yet not overpowering, fragrant yet approachable. The first sip delivers a rich vegetal profile and a light, pleasant astringency. The finish is floral and sweet. It is a wonderful representation of the tea upon which most senchas are based.

Senchas are the most commonly drunk loose leaf teas in Japan, making up 70% of the country's tea production. It is usually highly vegetal and seaweed-like in flavor. The most revered senchas strike a perfect balance of vegetal flavor, sugary aroma, bitterness, and astringency.

Notes of geranium & bell peppers.
