Sencha Koshun Organic

Product code: CSTV-39
Add to my notebook

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.
