About Koushun Sencha | こうしゅん

Description: This remarkable high mountain Sencha from shizuoka is grown at altitude on the steep slopes just south of Mount Fuji. Koushun is a unique cultivar that exudes a wildflower aroma with a gentle mineral backbone and a sophisticated and understated astringency. This light steamed Sencha is a remarkable example of terroir driven, single cultivar tea at its best.

What is so special about this tea? From the mountains of Shimizu, Koushun is a single cultivar, light steamed Sencha with all the trappings of mountainside tea: an exotic and enticing aroma, beautifully rolled needle shaped leaves and a pure, bright brewed color. This producer prides himself on continuing to produce many cultivars that are no longer commercially produced. Currently he makes 22 unique single cultivar senchas. We love the Koshun cultivar its heady Jasmine aroma and relative ease of brewing. We also carry the Yamakai cultivar which makes a great case study when tasted next to the Koshun.

Recommended for: People who love lighter, floral sencha

Best Green Tea I've ever had

I'm still new to the world of Tea, but after a cup of Koushun Sencha at a local cafe, I went back 4 days in a row. Had to get my own.

Love this green tea

I haven’t met a sencha sourced by Kettl that I haven’t loved. And this is no exception.

Feels like a mix of a taiwanese high mountain oolong and a traditional japanese green tea resulting in a green tea that is great for people who normally don't like green teas.

Drinking Koushun Feels Cozy

This is my first sencha from Kettl, ordered alongside the Koetsu houjicha. To cut to the chase, this is a delicious, subtle, and warm-feeling tea. It has a subtly sweet astringency and umami that is always a pleasure to taste, and the leaves have an incredible floral scent when dry.

I'm not made of money, so I reserve drinking this for days when I really need to focus on something and need a meditative moment before or after the day. As with most senchas (in my experience anyway), Koushun doesn't pair well with food, but is a superb tea for a calm moment when it's needed most. Drinking this tea feels cozy - it makes it easy to let stress melt away!
