Premium Sencha Yabukita
Organic green tea, Japan

Green beans, roasted pumpkin, seaweed
This premium quality sencha comes from the first spring harvest of 2019, grown on the Yamaguchi family tea farm in Kagoshima, Southern Japan. It is shaded for five days before harvest. 

While the dry leaves emit a sweet and fruity aroma, the steeped tea smells of buttery vegetable broth and has a comforting umami flavour with notes of raw green beans, roasted pumpkin skins and seaweed, followed by a little kick of pleasant bitterness in the finish.

Certified organic by Kagoshima Organic Agriculture Association (KOAA).

Preparation: Steep for 2 - 3 minutes at 80°. Two infusions. 

Food pairing:  Serve with salads, sushi, pumpkin soup, chicken, vegetables, noodle and rice dishes and Japanese cuisine in particular.
