About Uji No Sato Sencha | 宇治の里煎茶茶

Description: Uji No Sato is a delicate, light steamed Sencha from Uji. It was our hope to offer a tea that exemplified the Kyoto style Sencha: light, refreshing and exotic. This blend of primarily Yabukita was harvested in spring by multiple tea growers and gathered at auction by our producer. The finishing techniques employed are first rate and this field blend showcases exactly why Uji is still revered as the Burgundy of Japanese tea.

What is so special about this tea? This is a blend of Yabukita cultivars from throughout Uji. Yabukita provides the archetypical profile of Sencha from this region: Light and fragrant, with a refreshing minerality and mild fruitiness. The absence of intense umami make this a wonderful choice for those who find a more "tea" like green tea to be their speciality. The refined golden liquor brews up easily and consistently making this a great intro brewer as well. Due note like most Sencha from this region, use slightly cooler water and shorter brewing time to avoid astringency.

Recommended for: A wonderful daily drinker and a great intro to Kyoto style Sencha.

Mineral smoothness and delicacy. Found this tea to be more sensitive to temperature and time, so take care
