Sencha Kojima Kotarou (Shincha)
Proudly bearing its producer’s name, this early plucking from Shizuoka was made asamushi style (short steaming) with great skills. The tea shows uncommon aromatic complexity, a true testimony of M. Kojima’s ability to manipulate cultivars and transformation techniques.
Tastewise, this sencha presents impeccable balance. Briny sea grass aromas (samphire), bitter vegetables and fatty nuts undertones, it perfectly blends roundness and clarity. Very seductive, it made its way in our tasters’ top lists easily.
