Welcome to Yutaka Midori Sencha, the next single cultivar and single estate sencha green tea from Japan. Yutaka Midori translates as Rich Green, and tea is grown on a Kagoshima tea farm on the island of Kyushu, Japan. Before the harvest, the tea farmer shades the tea plants to increase the umami notes in the tea leaves.
This Sencha Reserve is processed in the "fukamushi" style (deep steamed). The steeped tea is a light yellow green with floral aroma, a buttery mouthfeel and mild notes of summer squash. Carefuly steeped at 170-175 degrees for 0.5-1 minute, there is no bitterness and it resteeps well multiple times.
Every few months we will offer a different Sencha Reserve for you to experience as a drink at the shop or loose leaf tea to make at home.
