Asatsuyu Sencha

Our top grade sencha from Kirishima.  This tea is from the Asatsuyu cultivar of tea and has earned the nickname of "Natural Gyokuro" for good reasons.  Although it is not shade-grown, it has a vivid green liquor and deep umami characteristic that is typically associated  with gyokuros.  The farm it is grown on is completely self-contained, bio-dynamic and the oldest tea farm in the region.  The aroma of the dry leaves is compelling and rich and only grows as it is steamed.  The resulting tea is out of this world and a gift to any sencha-lover.  

Due to poor weather conditions only a small amount of Asatsuyu was harvested in 2021.  As a result, we could only secure a quarter of the amount we usually buy.  For this reason, we will only be selling it in smaller quantities this year to help extend it's availability.
