This organic sencha comes directly to us from the Hiyashi family who we have been purchasing teas from for many years now. They run a very professional and immaculately kept organic tea plantation in Kirishima, Kagoshima, Japan, where they are producing some really excellent organic teas.
This particualar organic sencha of theirs is made from the excellent Kanayamidori cultivar, and in contrast to most sencha from Kagoshima this one doesn't see heavy steaming during production. Instead, offered here is an organic sencha that has been brilliantly light steamed in order to really showcase the great characteristics of the Kanayamidori cultivar. The dry leaf is presented in its long needle-like form and is loaded with fresh clean Kanayamidori fragrances. The infused tea is a lovely clear yellow with a taste profile that we would describe as being sweet, milky, and mellow. It's delightfully soft and clean in the mouth. A very delicious organic sencha that has the unique and distinct qualities of the Kanayamidori cultivar in abundance.
