This organic sencha is made from only first three leaves and buds harvested in April-May.
This tea has a strong umami like Dashi and a pleasant natural sweetness, almost no astringency or bitterness.
Very mild, yet refreshing Sencha.

Okuyutaka has a very mild astringency to it that makes the tea balanced and fresh tasting, without being bitter at all, it’s one of the most balanced senchas i had so far and it is how i imagined a great sencha would be : umami vs fresh subtle astringency . One of my favourites this year along with Asatsuyu.
