Sencha Zairai (2 oz)

Organically grown on a farm south of Kagoshima City, this sencha is made from the zairai varietal, which is a blend of several different native cultivars. The leaves are shaded for about a week before harvest- which increases the tea’s theanine content and decreases bitterness- then are steamed, dried and rolled. The resulting taste is fresh and clear, with a smooth texture. Upon a longer second steep, more full-bodied umami notes appear in a balanced sweet, corn silk flavor.
