This Japanese Sencha Asanoka tea is a premium green tea grown according to organic farming principles by an independent producer on the island of Kyushu, in Kagoshima prefecture to be precise.

It comes from the Asanoka cultivar, which gives the tea fresh, lively vegetal notes, a cereal pole and buttery notes with an iodized finish, typical of Japanese primeurs.

Arnaud DHENIN met the producer, Mr. Shutaro Hayashi, during his trip in April 2019, and was able to discuss his biodynamic growing methods. The plantation has been family-run for 3 generations, handed down from father to son.

This tea undergoes a short steeping process, giving it long, pretty needle-shaped leaves of light and dark jade color. It has not been shaded this year, which makes its aromatic palette a little more frank and direct. It should be steeped at least 3 times.

A rich, well-balanced Japanese primeur, with a sweet flavor and a long finish. A magnificent discovery.

Clairement moins bien que l 'année dernière. Cette année, il n 'a pas été ombragé , ce qui lui fait défaut . Une bonne longueur en bouche mais ça suffit pas pour sauver l 'affaire . Il manque les notes gourmandes , beurrés, lactées de 2022 . Il faut parfois savoir faire l 'impasse sur certains thés 3t en sélectionner des meilleurs ........
