A blend of Sae-midori and Yabukita cultivars, MIRAI is a complex and perfectly balanced sencha from Yame that greets you from the moment you open its bag with a rich and aromatic aroma with hints of red fruits.
Its long, needle-like leaves are delicate and shiny. In the cup, MIRAI has notes of steamed vegetables. Its rich green-yellow liquor leaves a coating mouthfeel and lingering sweetness typical of Yame sencha, with a nice touch of astringency that highlights its sweetness. For more details and steeping recommendations, you can read the in-depth review prepared by our tea taster Alex.
MIRAI can be enjoyed with a light chicken salad topped with toasted white sesame seeds and nuts or with a simple salad with cucumber and wax or green beans. Fresh green salads with a blend of lettuces and a small amount of arugula would also pair nicely with the tea.
