About Yumewakaba Sencha | ゆめわかば煎茶

Description: Yumewakaba is a recently created cultivar from the Sayama area of Saitama. This Fukamushi deep steamed Sencha undergoes an intentional withering prior to processing. The freshly picked leaves are exposed to UV light accelerating the withering process. This step is controlled to allow the floral undertones, common in this cultivar, to blossom and the rich, umami profile to still shine through. Finished with a slight Hiire firing, this is a complex tea with a gorgeous color, stunning aroma, and easy drinking profile.

What is so special about this tea? An incredibly unique tea made by an equally unique producer. The Sayama area lies within Saitama prefecture, just west of Tokyo. Made from entirely from the Yumewakaba cultivar, a varietal native to the area. The producer, Mr. Hiruma is somewhat of a legend. He is best known for his radical micro-oxidizing technique.

Recommended for: This is a refreshing Sencha that is quite different than our Kyushu offerings. It has an incredible aroma and full bodied profile. Use a little less leaf and a shorter brew time - great for an afternoon pick-me-up.

Excellent stuff

I absolutely loved this sencha. I didn’t find it too tricky to brew but always strong, lots of umami, and very aromatic. A lovely sencha

Yummy!

This is a very beautiful tea. It is especially special as once it’s brewed, you can take your time to drink as it’s just as lovely a little chilled.

Full-Bodied w/ Deep Umami

This shincha is different from the other senchas with high sweetness and umami I normally purchase from Kettl. It has a rich, full body and isn’t as sweet, yet still retains nice umami. It adds a nice variation to the other sencha I drink at home!
