Description

A blend of Yabukita and Sae-Midori cultivars, this exceptional sencha made by Koga cha gyo is served onboard a luxury cruise train in Kyushu to showcase the wonderful quality and taste of Yame tea.

As soon as you open its bag, a mouthwatering combination of milk, steamed edamame and toasted pine nut scents will greet you. In your cup, you will enjoy its vibrant green hue and light-bodied liquor. The subtle umami and consistent sweetness of this sencha are particularly enjoyable as they are highlighted by a slight hint of astringency.
