This small batch of Sencha is a special lot from a section of M. Sakamoto’s garden where Koshun cultivar is grown rather than the traditional Yabukita.
From the rare Asanoka cultivar, this sencha was produced by M. Shusaku Oishi, in Miyazaki Prefecture on the warm island of Kyushu in Southern Japan.
Its infusion is rich and creamy, dominated by herbaceous notes, as its flavour develops nuances of vegetables (corn, spinach) dominate, its finish leaves a sweet and fresh taste much like eating a melon on a hot summer day.
