2020 Sencha First Flush: Okumidori - 6 Days Covered
40 g / 1.41 oz
Approximately 10 servings
We are proud to announce that on the 8th March 2021, we were informed that this tea was awarded Silver at the annual Japanese Tea Selection Paris awards.
Harvested from our Somada fields in Wazuka, Kyoto, our Okumidori is known to possess a well balanced taste of umami and bitterness. The natural sweetness of this variety is further emphasised by its deep jade green color when brewed. To create a unique flavour profile, these Okumidori tea trees were covered for 6 days.
If you've previously enjoyed our Okumidori as a Matcha, we're pleased to let you know that as a Sencha, the strong umami is still bound to hypnotise you.
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.
