This "farmer's tea," artfully crafted by carefully separating the stems and coarse leaves from pure sencha, is exquisitely shaded for 15 days to accurately balance astringency with increased umami. Lovingly baked pre-shipment to further enhance its coveted aroma and flavor, this tea is the work of a venerable 6-generation tea family specializing in the production of kabuse sencha.
The roasted version of this tea is Houjicha, for a nuttier, maltier taste!
Slight baked nose, with a beautiful clear liquid and a green aftertaste that reminds us of the morning fog in Japan.
