Master Akiyama’s Fuji Sencha – 50g Postcard

£14.95

A medium-steamed sencha made from tea trees on the slopes of Mount Fuji in Shizuoka by Master Akiyama. Akiyama-san’s teas have won many prizes, including the top gold prize at The World Green Tea Contest, and he is recognised as one of Japan’s leading tea pioneers for his experimental work on different Japanese tea cultivars.

This year’s tea has a dry leaf aroma of tropical fruits, with a rich, grassy taste and lots of umami. It can be brewed normally at 75-80°C or with more leaf and lower temperature to accentuate the texture and umami.
