Description

This gift box is another creation of Koga san in Yame and is made of 125g of Yame sencha (in the silver cylinder) and 125g of Dento hon gyokuro (golden cylinder). Rewarded with the top prize at Fukuoka prefecture tea competition in their respective categories, they are two competition-grade green teas.

The sencha of this luxury set is light-bodied and made from yabukita cultivar.Its pale green liquor has a fragrant aroma with a hint of sweetness and bitterness. Hints of narcissus and collard greens accent notes of bean sprouts, butter lettuce, and pea tendrils. This is a great tea to pair with a light meal.

The dento hon gyokuro is vibrant and made with the saemidori cultivar which is highlighted by the craftsmanship of Koga san.

Notes of steamed zucchini, steamed spinach, and soybean balance with subtle hints of fresh almond and bamboo shoot. It is the perfect accompaniment to a meal.
