Sencha Soufu

Product code: CSTV-202

Mr. Sakamoto from the Kakegawa region of Shizuoka prefecture, Japan offers this splendid ephemera lbatch of green tea. The cultivar 'Soufu' translates as 'Blue Breeze', evoking its fresh aromas.

Infusion of the leaves releases delicate marine, vegetal and floral scents. It reveals a smooth liquor, textured with a very slight astringency and a bright lime green colour. The attack is slightly iodized, followed by fresh notes of spring flowers (lily of the valley), culminating in a fine sweet aftertaste of brioche bread.

A must try for any Sencha lover looking for a new experience.
