Here is a green tea from Shizuoka in Japan, from a cultivar we are very fond of, the Sakimidori.
The golden color of its needles is only the first surprise from this Shizuka Sencha. Once infused, you'll find a yellow, velvet-textured liquor, with buttery and vegetable flavours (snow peas, corn).
While its delicacy will also take you by surprise, it definitely won't leave any Japanese tea enthusiasts indifferent.
A hidden gem!
