Tsuyuhikari Sencha | つゆひかり煎茶

Description: A remarkable single cultivar Sencha from Fukuoka. Tsuyuhikari was created with the buttery rich Asatsuyu cultivar and the spicy and aromatic Shizu 7132. What is so striking about this tea is it offers something both new and classic. The fragrance reminds us of something you'd find in the mountains of Shizuoka or flatlands of Saitama - floral, baking spice, and an almost oolong like character. But the underlying umami and toasted aroma of the leaf puts you squarely back in Yame. This is truly unlike any other Sencha we have carried.

What is so special about this tea? Tea from a single cultivar, let alone a single garden is still quite rare in Japan. This 100% Tsuyuhikari Sencha is handcrafted by a two farmers from one field. This is still a newer cultivar for commercial production in Yame and gets special treatment - impeccable steaming and post firing mean the teas brews up a deep green hue with lots of fragrance, umami and aromatics. Simply delicious.

Recommended for: This is a refreshing Sencha that is quite different from our other Yame offerings. It has an incredible aroma and full bodied profile.

Pleasant Adjustment!

I wasn’t expecting the kind of husky, smoky quality to the taste of this tea! I had to adjust from where my palate usually abides. Once I did, it has been my go to tea in the morning and in the late afternoon. Deliciously seductive and refreshing in a moody way. Deliciously satisfying.

One of my favorites from Kettl and has been a repeat purchase. There’s a nice balance of sweetness and nuttiness. Brew for slightly longer and some of that spice comes through. It’s complex and enjoyable.

A very unique sencha

This tea is really growing on me. It started as a pleasantly unique experience, but has really to continue to grow on me every time I have it. Recommended if you’re looking for a not-so-classic Sencha taste!
