Here is a green tea from Shizuoka in Japan, from a cultivar we are very fond of, the Sakimidori.
Sencha Yame Shun
This is a unique lot of Japanese green tea was carefully plucked and processed on the island of Kyushu, in the Yame prefecture of Fukuoka. The expertise of this new producer has made this year's Sencha a favourite of the team.
The dark green of the leaves, the depth of the vegetal notes and the smooth texture that coats the mouth recall the taste of Gyokuro. Smooth and soft, its slightly fruity finish will satisfy the taster in search of finesse.
