2020 Sencha First Flush: Gokou
40 g / 1.41 oz
Approximately 10 servings
Harvested from our organic fields in Yubune, Wazuka, d:matcha's signature Sencha Gokou tea leaves were covered for 15 days. These tea fields were cultivated without the use of pesticide or fungicide. Native to the Kyoto Prefecture, this variety is commonly used for the production of more premium products such as Gyokuro and Tencha for Matcha.
The flavour profile is one with a mild bitter taste, accompanied by a deep umami taste. Although best brewed at 60 degrees with soft water, even if you were to brew the tea at 100 degrees, the distinct taste of the tea is still prominent.

The First Flush, usually in Spring, is also known as the first harvest of the season. Only the youngest and most tender shoots are harvested. We hope you feel the tranquility of Wazuka with each sip.
