Hoshino Sencha Okumidori
The exquisite sencha leaves in this tea were carefully picked in the renowned village of Hoshino in Yame. Hoshino, which translates to “star field,” is a fitting name as the stars shine particularly bright in this secluded mountain valley. Sencha from mountain valleys like Yame is rare due to the lower temperatures, resulting in a harvest that begins about a month later than in lower and flatter regions. However, these lower temperatures contribute to the development of more intense and complex aromas.
The Okumidori cultivar was meticulously selected for this tea. Okumidori is renowned for its rich umami flavor profile, making it a favored choice for gyokuro and matcha production. When combined with the characteristic freshness of sencha, the umami notes from Okumidori create a harmoniously balanced tea that offers an exceptional drinking experience.
