About Kirishima Producer Portfolio | 霧島新茶セット

Description: We are excited to showcase this unique horizontal tasting of three unique shincha from one of Kagoshima's most distinguished producers. While single cultivar Sencha has taken the spotlight, and with good reason, We also love to share the perspective of the Chashi, or tea blender responsible for creating teas with both consistency and character. This three tea set includes our beloved Sumire - a sencha that has always punched way above its weight class. Next, Kirishima 100 is a refined and decadent shincha using cultivars which accentuate the sweeter and richer side and Kagoshima tea. And finally, our very limited Kirishima Tokjou - our most refined shincha experience. Made from heritage plants from a small plot - Tokujou is as refined an shincha experience as one could hope for. With this, we are thrilled to be able to present several expressions from one area and one producer giving you a deeper understanding of the teas.

What is so special about this tea? Kagoshima will soon overtake Shizuoka as the largest producer of tea in Japan by prefectural output. The majority of this tea comes from the Chiran area - slightly south of Kirishima. Kirishima is lesser-known - especially outside of Japan. Known for producing high-grade Sencha and Kabuse, Kirishima is a spot you should definitely know about. We love what this tea maker is doing - coaxing out incredible flavors while still offering a wonderful value. This sets up Sumire as a perfect daily drinker for those of you who love deep green, fragranced, aromatic teas.

Recommended for: Three best in class Shincha from a remarkable producer and a famous production region.
