This sencha is refreshingly sweet. Its round texture is what stands out—where other green teas deliver with umami or floral aroma, this sencha is soft, deep, mellow with little bitterness and no astringency.
The musashi kaori cultivar has origins in Taiwan, similar to the "sora" sencha that we carry and is a derivation of Taiwanese milk oolongs. It was first developed in the Saitama Prefecture, just north of Tokyo and is most commonly found in that region. We were surprised to discover that our producer grows musashi kaori in Shizuoka.
