Description

The tea leaves for this White Sencha were picked in the famous village Hoshino in Yame. It has a naturally occurring mutation that turns the color of leaves yellowish-white  and makes the tea rich in amino acids.

Hoshino means translated “star field”. A fitting name as in this remote mountain valley the stars shine especially bright. Kabuse sencha from mountain valleys such as Yame are a rarity because, due to the lower temperatures, the harvest starts about a month later than in deeper and shallower growing areas. The lower temperatures, however, lead to more intense and complex aromas.

Harvest: May 2022
Aroma: Sweet with a lot umami
Terroir: Hoshino, Yame, Prefecture Fukuoka, Japan.
Varietal: Hakusei
Preparation: In this blog post you will find a description of how to brew Japanese green tea in an optimal way.
