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. -

The traditional Sencha grown in full light with no shade before harvest by a well known tea family in Kagoshima (Soo district).

The southern regions of Japan, including Kagoshima, are favorable to the cultivation of the Nanmei cultivar due to their mild climate. This young cultivar was created in Kagoshima in 2012 from the cultivars Sayamakaori and Makurazaki 13 with the aim of obtaining tea trees resistant to diseases and insects to facilitate the production of organic or cultivated tea without pesticides.

It is an early cultivar (the buds of Nanmei come out 7 days before the Yabukita) characterized by intense green leaves and a clear and balanced liquor between umami and sweet bitterness.
The leaves of the sencha have a buttery aroma, while the first infusion brings out a slightly fruity / citrus aroma. The transparent light yellow liquor offers a round and creamy attack which continues with a sensation of delicious astringency and long finish.
The second infusion reveals a different expression and body, with a more vegetable flavor.
The third infusion is light, with anise / spicy notes.

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