This organic sencha, entitled YOROKOBI, is a top graded blend that has been kindly put together for us by Mr. Nishi in Kirishima in Kagoshima!
Mr Nishi is a tea grower who manages many organic plantations in Kirishima, but the majority of tea leaves, of various grades and harvests, that his plantations cultivate are actually sold off to tea manufactures around Japan who process the leaves and then sell them on to any old reseller (Mr Nishi often has no idea who is selling his teas!). However, Mr Nishi of course always retains his very best teas of the year, and this is one of them which is honestly 100% self cultivated and self manufactured by Mr.Nishi in his factory in Kirishima and sent directly to us by him!
It is medium steamed sencha that has been blended for richness, sweetness, and greenness! It is certainly abundant in all three, so we are very confident that if you like those three characteristics, you will love this organic sencha. Pretty much always one of the most sumptuous organic sencha of the year and excellent value, too.
