Description: A tea we look forward to every year. This spring picked sencha undergoes a 6 month refrigerated aging known as Jukusei. What does that do? Much like ageing meat or fish, amino acids in the tea develop while the catechin and fragrant compounds have time to mellow and integrate. What does that taste like? All the high end heady aromas of Shincha with a laser focused umami, lasting sweetness and just the right amount of nuttiness - heaven I guess?

What is so special about this tea? A unique tea with a unique process. The Jukusei method is quite popular in Uji - for Tencha and Gyokuro - but much less so in the Kyushu area. An adventurous producer tried it a few years ago with wonderful results. We find it strikes a great balance and has an other worldly aroma and lingering sweetness. If you love our Miyabi and Tsutsuji, you are definitely going to love this tea as well
