This high fired Sencha has dark glossy leaves and gives a clear light yellow liquor, full and sweet, vegetal and zesty. Roasted and cereal notes develop into a fresh floral finish.
From an organic culture on Kyushu Island, this tea is produced by pan-fried method (kamairi), instead of the conventional Japanese method of steaming. This style of transformation gives a particular balance between bitterness and sweetness, exempt from the typical astringency found in Sencha style teas.
Pleasant nutty aromas, flavours similar to chestnuts, a slightly sweet and citrusy after taste.
this tea is a great combination of smoothness and intensity.

A splendid road
Hugo is a Japanese tea love. Here's a part of his journey, reaching out for the Issinen family who produces the Kamairicha. The road to get there is wonderful, through the mountains and rivers that makes this country so unique and amazing!
