This sencha is an annual special release our renowned producer in Yame, Fukuoka, Japan. It is their primary single cultivar sencha offering. The producer identifies one cultivar from the year's harvest to serve as the year's "Tokusen" sencha and makes it available for a limited time until it sells out. 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.
