About Tokusen Uji Shincha | 特撰宇治

The quintessential taste of Uji, Tokusen Uji is a time capsule showcasing the classic piercing freshness of first harvest Kyoto tea. Tokusen brews up with energy and dynamism leaving the refreshing scent of Spring behind. While the fragrance is lovely, the mouthfeel is also unusually rich - due in part to a 3 day shading before harvest. This shading also helps to limit catechin production in the leaf making for an incredible smooth cup of tea.

Recommended for: For the lover of light steamed, gentle Sencha. This has body and a deep character without any roasted (hiire) notes of heavy handed umami. Very elegant and fresh with a mild minerality.
