About Albino Sencha | 白姫

Description: This tea hails from the Yamaguchi family in Hoshinomura, Fukuoka Japan. The bright golden leaves are the product of a gene mutation that limits chlorophyll production in the specific cultivar of tea plant. Due to the decrease in photosynthetic activity, the chemical Theanine does not convert to catechin in the leaf and gives this tea a wonderful rich umami. We love how this tea takes on a wonderfully pointed fragrance is that is mildly chocolatey and intoxicatingly fresh. Expect a deep, rich and silky tea with near zero astringency.

 Recommended for: Lovers of the richer style of Kyushu style senchas - our Tsutsuji and Ayame Kabuse for example - will adore this tea.
