TENRYU (HEAVENLY DRAGON) | Yabukita Asamushi Sencha
OCTOBER 2023 STEAMED TEA CLUB FEATURE!
Experience: what we think about when we think about the foothills of Mt. Fuji. A vibrant tea reminiscent of bright green, vitamin C rich fir tips that grow in early spring; notes of conifer and citrus. Being a lightly steamed tea from a cold climate and rocky soils, the colour of the liquor is a very clean, light green. The tea opens up as you sip, revealing notes of stone fruit and the pleasant astringency that represents Shizuoka’s favourite cultivar (yabukita) so well.
The 2023 version of this tea is very similar to last year's, with slightly stronger emphasis on the spring conifer notes.
