This Sencha from Shizuoka region in Japan comes in from a rare cultivar called Koshun and is known for its intense floral bouquet.
The infusion of its large beautiful leaves produces a full and silky liquor, slightly tangy, evoking sorrel. Rich aromas of white flowers (lilies), citrus zest and almond coexist with its herbaceous character.
Well balanced, this tea offers a remarkably long persistence.
