£8.95£41.00

photo3 (5)

A sencha from Yakushima, an island off the south coast of Kagoshima whose outstanding natural beauty is protected as a UNESCO World Heritage site. Mr. Watanabe and two other friends started the tea estate over 15 years ago to make the most of Yakushima’s unusual location and pristine environment – free from mass farming and pesticide use – and have been farming ecologically on their small farm ever since.

This is a lovely everyday sencha with a mild, grassy taste, citrus-fruit acidity and a balanced sweetness with some umami. We recommend brewing this tea with 3-4g per 150ml of water and water cooled to around 75-80°C
