This sencha is an annual special release our renowned producer in Yame, Fukuoka, Japan. It is their primary single cultivar sencha offering. Each year, the producer identifies one cultivar to serve as the year's "Tokusen" sencha and makes it available for a limited time. This sencha has a balanced sweetness, rich aroma and robust umami with little bitterness.
When selecting the cultivar for this sencha, this producer searches for one that is especially fragrant, yet has a soft, gentle texture. The tea is then finished by hand by the owner himself.
