ORIGIN JAPAN, MIE
HARVESTED SPRING 2020
GRAM 30g

A rare high quality Sencha from Mie prefecture. Although being the third largest producing region of tea in Japan most of Mies teas end up in teabags and low grade bags. This competition grade Sencha is a great example that the region also has outstanding and unique teas. It has a subtle umami and fine bitterness reminding of walnuts emerging in the throat. What follows is a gentle and long lasting sweetness arising. A nice contrast to other modern Sencha and prime example of Mie teas. 

About Sencha

Sencha is the most famous steeped Japanese green tea. Developed in the 18th century through new influences from China in literati circles, it has become the staple in Japanese households in all its diversity. It differs mainly from Chinese greens teas during production in the step of 殺青/sassei/fixation, which here is still done in the older way of steaming the leaves. This often gives it a fresh and pleasantly grassy note. The fresh tea of the year is especially valued.
