Thes du Japon's Tasting Notes

The liquor has rich, unique fragrances. It is mellow, dominated by notes of aromatic herbs and spices. As it cools a little, this Japanese green tea also offers aromas of browned butter, and notes recalling coconut.

In the mouth, the first attack is round, both green and slightly sweet, and then it yields to complex flavours enhanced by a touch of astringency, but the liquor develops a lot of umami mellowness in the aftertaste.

It is a sencha that shows great length, with epicurean flavours, including fruity notes after the second infusion.

All in all, it produces liquor with no heaviness: light but full and stimulating. The aromatic palette of this sencha is of exceptional depth and variety. Despite the entirely unique aromas and strong personality, the whole remains highly balanced and of great purity.
