2021 Sencha First Flush: Gokou
Cultivated variety: Gokou
Shading period: 14 days
Harvested from our organic fields in Yubune, Wazuka, d:matcha's signature Sencha gokou tea leaves were covered for 14 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 that of a deep, almost creamy-like, umami taste. The pleasant aroma also highlights the slight tinge of bitterness from the brew.
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.
