sencha asamushi from Shizuoka, Yabukita cultivar.
I'll write a more formal description soon, but consider this tea the "great bang for your buck" one on the menu. Excellent quality, mellow aromatics and very low bitterness, all coming in at a more than affordable price. I don't normally import green teas in the winter, but when batches like this one come along, I bend the rules.
Taste is more on the sweet side, with very little tannins overall. Aromas are clean and comforting, with notes of sautéed greens, pine needles and citruses. There's a round warmth to it also, like fresh baked bread. Very easy on the palate.
3 $ flat rate shipping on all orders up to 10 tea samples.
