Tokusen Tsubodashi Sencha

Autumn Sencha Blend from Horii Shichimeien

Seasonality

Before the era of air-tight packaging, tea farmers in Kyoto wrapped their tea, and put it in large "tsubo", vessels, which they sealed with paper, and then carried to Mount Hiei to keep it cool during the hot and damp summer. In Autumn these vessels were carried down ceremonially. To pay tribute to this old tradition, the "chajin", master blenders make special seasonal tea blends that recall the flavor of the traditional, mountain-matured green tea.

As this sencha was kept in wooden cases in a cool, and dry place during the whole summer, thus it exhibits a traditional, sweet, and mellow sencha flavor. Some would call it nostalgically rustic. It is sweet and smooth like oatmeal, while the particularly lasting aftertaste is fresh and verdant. The spicy tartness makes this tea edgy and very refreshing.

It is worth taking a look at the tea leaves, such beautifully processes sencha leaves are not common.

Available until early December.

STEP 3) Pour the water from the cups into the teapot, and brew for 40 seconds.
STEP 4) Pour the tea into the cups, and serve.
STEP 5) Brew again. The same tea leaves can be infused three times. Use hotter water for the second and third infusion, but steep for a shorter time.

Sweet, soft grassy, mellow taste. The second and third infusions have a spring taste to it. Easy going tea.
