Here is a Hon.yama sencha made from the Kôshun cultivar by Mr. Kosugi at the from the famous Tsukiji Estate in Tamakawa. This variety of tea tree is known for its characteristic floral fragrance. More than anything else, this is a splendid sencha, with beautiful large whole leaves that exhale a invigorating rustic springtime scent.
The infusion is perfectly clear, and its sweet perfume is composed of subtle notes of white flowers with something that recalls almonds.
In the mouth, this Japanese green tea is exquisite, light and airy. It has just the right amount of sweetness, and the floral aromas remain delicate. While the Kôshun cultivar can produce very harsh, conventional teas, this one succeeds in playing the cards of sweetness and subtlety while retaining the characteristic fragrances of Kôshun.
