OKUMIDORI SENCHA | おくみどり煎茶
Sencha is the most common tea type in Japan. To halt oxidation after harvest, leaves are steamed instead of pan-roasted, which is the common process in Chinese green tea making. Gentle grilled corn umami with a hint of kale chips shifts to chestnut sweetness, followed by a lingering persimmon aftertaste. Grown without synthetic fertiliser or pesticides in Yame, Fukuoka.
