Sencha Ashikubo Organic

Product code: CSTV-35
Add to my notebook

This tea comes from the magnificent Ashikubo valley and has undergone a long drying process.

What results is a clear, mild liquor that is slightly fruitier and toastier than other generally more herbaceous senchas. Secondary aromas of corn, mango, hazelnuts and parsley make it an ideal tea for anyone starting to discover Japanese teas.
