This sencha was crafted with Tsuyuhikari, a cultivar known for its sweeter flavor profile, by the Shimizu family of Suizawa, Mie Prefecture. This particular production lot comes from a new tea field (planted 2015), and was given the name Ubugoe 産声, meaning “the cry of a newborn”.

Tasting notes

I was very impressed with this Tsyuhikari sencha green tea from. Unshaded, harvested on Apr 25, 2019, and more than just single origin, but single cultivar / single field, the tea leaves are beautifully shaped needles...not all perfectly straight, but fine, shiny leaves indicative of an early young leaf harvest, with little powder (refined well). 

Flavor notes: Grassy, but sweet and buttery taste, little bitterness but an interestingly astringent aftertaste.
