From What-Cha

We’re excited to offer a kabuse (two week shaded) sencha unusually produced from zairai (old seed grown tea plants). It has a smooth almost creamy sweet taste with a very gentle umami finish.

Produced from 30+ year old bushes grown from seeds gives the sencha an atypical taste and texture, leaning closer in certain regards to a green oolong than a sencha.

Tasting Notes:
- Smooth, slightly creamy texture
- Smooth sweet taste with a gentle umami finish with grass hints

Harvest: Spring, May 2020

Steamed: Light (Asamushi)

Origin: Kyoto Obubu Tea Farm, Wazuka, Kyoto Prefecture, Japan
Altitude: 0-500m
Cultivar: Zarai (Grown from pre-cultivar seeds)
Farmer: Akihiro “Akky” Kita
Sourced: Direct from the farmer
Percentage of price going back to the farmer: 20%+

Brewing Advice:
- Heat water to roughly 75°C/167°F
- Use 2 teaspoons per cup/small teapot
- Brew for 30-45 seconds

Packaging: Resealable ziplock bag
