Sencha Asatsuyu Organic
Originating from the Miyazaki region in southern Japan, this Japanese green tea is ideal for an introduction to the sencha style. The leaves of the Asatsuyu cultivar have an enticing sweet, herbal aroma that invites you to enjoy this tea every day.
As the tea is poured, aromas of vegetable (roasted corn) and butter fill the air. These aromas are characteristic of the roasting process that is used for this style of sencha during transformation. The silky liquor is rich with the same aromas and satisfying flavours and lingers with a sweet floral finish.
A great thirst-quenching tea.
