From an organic culture on Kyushu Island, this green 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.
