A perfectly balanced Sencha combining a rich depth of umami with a sweet and fruity aroma and finish.
Sencha sample tasting is always an experience - potent, theanine rich brews all lined up to taste can be a bit daunting because I know that I will get tea high and I will be experiencing some pretty full-on flavour notes. I am always looking for Japanese Greens to have that deep umami funk but for this to be tempered with creaminess and a fruity twang.
It was love at first sip with this Shizuoka Okumidori - so brothy but light and creamy with an unmistakable cherry blossom and sweet lemon taste. We swooped on this batch instantly.
