From Čajový Dom

Exclusive Sencha from organically grown Tsuyuhikari cultivar from Shizuoka Prefecture. This is a rarity, as this cultivar represents less than 1% of Japanese production. The leaf is dark green, shiny, shaped into nice long needles. The infusion is clear, light green, Hikari means light. Floral tones appear in the scent of the leaves. The taste is delicious and balanced. Aftertaste is sweet, juicy with a medium duration. This tea is only available in limited quantities. In our opinion, this was the best senchu from our offer of the 2020 season from the Shizuoka area.

[Spring 2021 harvest]

I haven’t had such a good sencha in a while. This one is thick, smooth and with lots of breadth. There is next to no astringency and the cha qi is somewhere between energizing and calming.

The dry leaf aroma is strong and includes notes of green peas and sunflowers. Later, scents of beef jerky, juniper tree and cedar emerge.

First steep is super smooth and has a very strong umami. There are flavours of sunflower oil, walnuts and yeast. As it cools down, I notice the tea getting more tangy with a mildly acerb finish. Later, it becomes more tart and marine like with flavours such as lime and seaweed.

Unfortunately, the aftertaste is not particularly exciting. Nevertheless, the rest of the experience makes up for it.
