A shaded sencha from natural gardens in the hilly area below the Kirishima volcano. The shading of the tea plants encourages the leaves to maintain their stores of amino acids, producing a full-bodied and elegant sencha, reminiscent of higher grade teas. This sencha is sweet with creamy and fresh flavours and vanilla notes. Delicious brewed hot or cold.
