Description

A special, Limited Edition 2021 shincha from Shizuoka, this tea was handpicked for perfect leaf shape and quality, steamed normally.

Tea developer, Miyoshi Yamamori, developed this rare tea cultivar "Marishi" containing a lot of chlorophyll that makes leaves dark green. Featuring a high umami content, the leaf produces a naturally sweet and rich flavor.

Notes from Ian: My own tasting of this tea left me at a loss for words. I wanted to say it was silky, but that also doesn't describe the light, fluffiness...after some thought, I think the best analog would be if a bancha is a baseball, it's astringency and bitterness creating a hard flavor profile, this tea is like holding down feathers lightly in your hand. I apologize for not having better words to describe this amazing tea.
