Japanese Green Tea

From Wazuka, Soraku District, Kyoto Prefecture, Honshu Island Japan


A mix of leaf size to this sencha from long tightly rolled leaf to flat and shorter leaf with an emerald green tone and bright lush flecks. The tea soup is a bold yellow hue with a pleasant wood aroma. Medium body with green grassy notes, umami and light astringency to taste. With a medium length sharp, sweet flavour.

The tea has been grown in full sun, unshaded cultivation and harvested in July'18. Then undergone light steaming, rolling and drying process.

Wazuka is a tea town in the southeastern area of Kyoto Prefecture. Wazuka has been a tea growing location since the Kamakura period as a main producer following Uji tea processing methods. It thought that the Kaijūsen-ji temple introduced tea to the area and Zen Buddhist monk, Shonin Jishin was the first to cultivate tea on Mt Jubu and then in Wazuka.
