Chiran Farmer’s Sencha | Organic | 2021

知覧 農家さんの煎茶

Non-sorted and medium-steamed organic Yabukita Sencha from the spring harvest in april 2021 by Chiran Nōen in Chiran, Kagoshima.



Description | 詳細

The Yabukita cultivar is the most widespread variety of the tea plant in Japan today, and Chiran Farmer’s Sencha provides an interesting insight into the classic qualities that have helped make the Yabukita so popular. The medium-steamed (chūmushi) Yabukita leaves from the 2021 spring harvest offer a natural and balanced umami, complemented by a mild presence of tannins and an almost nutty sweetness from the stem material which, in this case, has been allowed to remain.

A skillful hi-ire accentuates the sweetness and fresh aroma of the leaves with typical associations to mango and other tropical fruits. As such, Chiran Farmer’s Sencha presents an at once round and robust organic green tea, making it a delicate everyday Sencha.
