Chashi Meijin Fukamushi Sencha; Kakegawa, Shizuoka, 50g - 2018

Chashi Meijin Fukamushicha - 2018 (deep-steamed tea,) Sencha
Origin: Kakegawa City, Shizuoka Prefecture
Cultivar: Yabukita
This premium fukamushi sencha was awarded the Gold Medal by Monde de Selection, an independent product quality testing institute in Brussels, Belgium. As with most deep-steamed tea, it infuses quickly and produces a deep green color on the first infusion. Very full bodied with grassy flavor and aroma, combined with a hint of marine air. Very smooth and light, with low astringency even on subsequent infusions.
