This Corean tea is entirely picked and transformed by hand. The result is of a rare complexity: sweet scents of green peas, kombu seaweed and raisins; body dominated by herbal aromas with hints of chestnuts and peat; lightly tart and marine-like finish with fruity and floral undertones.

This tea comes from the magnificent Ashikubo valley and has undergone a long drying process. What results is a clear, mild liquor that is slightly fruitier and toastier than other generally more herbaceous senchas. Secondary aromas of corn, mango, hazelnuts and parsley make it an ideal tea for anyone starting to discover Japanese teas.
