Sencha Hokuen

Try this tea first
Product code: CSTV-198

From the great tea-producing region of Shizuoka, the beautiful, long and slim needles of this Japanese green tea release intoxicating and promising fragrances of exotic fruits (passion fruit) as dry leaves, a phenomenon is often linked to the firing of the leaves.

Once infused the tea releases the richer character of this fascinating tea: fatty notes of nuts and butter compliment the slightly fruity (mango) and vegetal (grilled vegetables) flavours.

A complex and well balanced tea.
