Description

2024 first harvest 

From Chiran, Kagoshima, Shimono san expertly blended four cultivars (Yutaka Midori, Yabukita, Sae Midori, and Asatsuyu) to create this high-quality, deep-steamed (fukamushi) sencha. REN has a light body with notes of steamed broccoli, pine nut, and water chestnut.

Subtle floral notes of dried gardenia and spring flowers balance with underlying umami characteristics. Its silken and sweet finish comes through beautifully with multiple steeps as you taste more of what Chiran has to offer.

cold brew champ

Great for cold brew! And a nice trick: cold brew, then mildly heat some of the cold brew to "wash" the leftover leaves 2-3 times. You can get the best of both the mildness of cold brew and the more nuanced flavors that only come out with a hot brew.

Love both Ren and Rei

Rei from this same producer is a real fave, but I love to appreciate another tea in rotation, just to notice the differences. Ren is that tea. Buy them both to see!

The delicacy of this tea surprised me. I am new to the world of Japanese sencha, and had tried only one fukamushi before, from Shizuoka. That tea was rich and vegetal, almost syrupy in its sweetness. This is quite different. The vegetal element is there (along with umami), but the tea is light and subtly sweet, and very fresh. The aroma is fresh too, with a hint of warmth and — just faintly — flowers. Like a perfect summer morning!

A very good sencha for the price. Definitely a unique and strong umami flavour in this sencha.
