Description

First flush (shincha 2023)

A blend of Yabukita and Sae-Midori cultivars, this exceptional first-flush sencha from Yame is a extraordinarily sweet delicacy with no bitterness. Thanks to high levels of umami, you will enjoy the full-bodied mouthfeel of its light-green colored liquor, as well as delicious and refreshing fragrance. 

While it is not a fukamushi (deep-steamed) sencha, its leaves have nevertheless gone through a robust steaming process to enhance its mouthwatering scent.

YANA offers a range of aromas that is not fully revealed at first tasting. At first sight, prepared like a more classical sencha (80°C/30-60 seconds of infusion), it gives a strong umami taste, assertive and long in the mouth.

Brew it at a lower temperature (60°C/60 seconds) to let the palette of its aromas and its freshness express themselves more freely. This tea delivers an unequalled roundness, without any trace of bitterness, with fresh and slightly fruity notes.

Essence of the Earth

I very much enjoyed this tea with nice umami, a lovely sweetness and balance of bitter, though without any bitterness if that makes sense, particularly brewed around 60-65°. Also it has a nice aroma. It's like drinking the essence of the Earth.

Wonderful treat

This is the perfect go-to tea to help kick-start my day. The full-bodied taste (yet not overwhelming) strikes a perfect balance. Thank you for this wonderful tea!
