About Uji No Sato Sencha | 宇治の里煎茶茶

Description: Uji No Sato is a delicate, light steamed Sencha from Uji. It was our hope to offer a tea that exemplified the Kyoto style Sencha: light, refreshing and exotic. This blend of primarily Yabukita was harvested in spring by multiple tea growers and gathered at auction by our producer. The finishing techniques employed are first-rate and this field blend showcases exactly why Uji is still revered as the Burgundy of Japanese tea.

What is so special about this tea? This is a blend of Yabukita cultivars from throughout Uji. Yabukita provides the archetypical profile of Sencha from this region: Light and fragrant, with a refreshing minerality and mild fruitiness. The absence of intense umami makes this a wonderful choice for those who find a more "tea" like green tea to be their specialty. The refined golden liquor brews up easily and consistently making this a great intro brewer as well. Do note, like most Sencha from this region, use slightly cooler water and shorter brewing time to avoid astringency.

Recommended for: A wonderful daily drinker and a great intro to Kyoto style Sencha.

Mineral smoothness and delicacy. Found this tea to be more sensitive to temperature and time, so take care
