Sencha Yame Kirari
We have just added this new Japanese cultivar, Kirari, to our selection with this small batch of rare finesse. Full and sophisticated, this Sencha offers some unique and original flavours elements and is only available for a very limited time.
The fine leaves offer delicate vegetal and cereal notes. The sparkling green liquor has a silky, dense texture and a sinuous mouthfeel. The umami reveals first and is sustained by subtle tannins reminiscent of clover flower, culminating in an ethereal finish of citrus notes reminiscent of pink grapefruit.
A fresh, new experience, perfectly suited for a hot summer day.
