A blended, unshaded sencha coming from well-known tea farmer Uejima-san's Wazuka tea fields. The two cultivars, okumidori and tsuyuhikari both originate from Shizuoka prefecture. Okumidori, which one may be more familiar with is a well-rounded and mellow cultivar which perhaps does best when combined with another cultivar (of course, this depends on personal preference!). Uejima-san combined this Wazuka sencha premium with the tsuyuhikari (meaning "dew light") cultivar which is known for its high umami taste and refreshing color. It also has a fresh aroma and is delicately floral. Yes, this sencha is a dance of these two cultivars coming from the famous tea producing region of Wazuka!
