The Story

- This top of the world sencha tea selection comes from our direct connections from Japan. Pieter Loridon also gets his Premium and Ceremonial quality matcha from these farms, where he went in June 2018 to get to know the owners and the matcha fields. -

This family (father, mother and their two sons) produces high quality teas on their estate in the Hioki district in Kagoshima.

This tea is a Fukamushi sencha, which means that it has gone through a longer steaming process than normal sencha. The leaves are lush and pretty, with the powdery appearance typical of Fukamushi teas. As a result of this steaming method coupled with a hot final drying, this sencha will infuse quickly in hot water and will offer a deep flavor with smooth mouth feel. The deep green liquor is thick and full bodied, revealing a fresh and bold steamed green flavor combined with a rich umami and sweet notes.

Be mindful when brewing this to use lower temperature water, to prevent scalding the leaves.
