Sencha Yame Harukaze

Product code: CSTV-196
Add to my notebook

This Japanese Sencha comes to us from a recently discovered and very gifted producer in Fukuoka, on the island of Kyushu. This limited edition is a perfect alternative to your regular green tea.

Inhaling the aroma of the leaves, dry or infused, fills the senses with a pleasant mix of floral and sweet, the latter coming from a subtle light-roasting of the tea (Hiire). The vegetal flavours (cooked courgettes) are balanced in the finish by light notes of roasted hazelnuts.

Grand cru

Gyokuro Tamahomare

Three weeks before hand harvesting, shade structures which filter out up to 90% of sunlight are placed over the tea to develop what is commonly called in Japan "the taste of the shadows. The result is a tea weak in tannins, highly complex and aromatic.
