Description

2023 harvest 

SAWA is a beautiful representation of Kiya san’s craftsmanship. This kabusecha has deep-green, needle-shaped leaves, indicative of the shading process that this tea undergoes prior to harvesting.

The shading of this tea leads to more developed umami characteristics accented with notes of pine and narcissus. Its complex and aromatic liquor has notes of bok choy, nori, and artichoke. This tea can be steeped multiple times, and its distinctive layers can be enjoyed throughout the day.

Enjoyable

I've given 5 stars as I think the price for this tea is good value for money. It has quite a nice full bodies flavour to it and although not the most complex whilst drinking, it does have a very nice deep rich aftertaste on the tongue. So well worth trying in my view.

Reminds me of the ocean!

In Sawa, I found that mineral taste that I adore.

Beautiful and refreshing

This is such a lovely tea. It has so many fruity notes to it and is bright and refreshing. Also makes for a great iced tea during warm months. It has a lovey sweetness to it, just don’t over-steap it.
