Sencha Koshun Organic
This sencha from Shizuoka region comes 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.

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.
Enjoyable Japanese green tea made with a mixture of twigs and leaves of Sencha. Its yellow-green liquor smoothly deploys its rich texture along with scents of fresh herbs and nut butter. Its tangy finish is also evocative of exotic fruits. Note for Sushi lovers; this tea is a perfect compliment.
A great Chinese Classic whole leaf with a bright tint of jade. A clear green liquor, brisk and tasty with elegant floral and grassy notes well structured with an edge of fresh hazelnut.
