Single Origin Sencha – 040 Shizu7132
This fragrant sencha from Makinohara, Shizuoka Prefecture, is a tea with a slight cherry blossom-like scent. This is due to the fragrance component “coumarin” that is also contained in the leaves of the cherry blossoms, rather than actually perfuming the tea. The long maturing process after harvest helps to bring out the aroma in this sencha.
30g of loose tea leaves. Approx 4g per 120ml, 3 brews.
