Description

In Japan, the most prestigious teas are the Ichibancha, which means "first harvest". This tea is a Sencha from Miyazaki, on the island of Kyushu. It is harvested 500 metres above sea level, and was produced from a rare cultivar known as Meiryoku. A spring Sencha with a smooth texture and umami taste. Its powerful aromatic notes are vegetal, fruity and iodised all at once.

This tea is grown organically and certified by Ecocert, an accredited independent certification body.

The Choice of Francois-Xavier Delmas

Tea sommelier Expert and Founder of Palais Des Thés

As I drink this Grand Cru, it takes me away to Brittany. I close my eyes and see myself enjoying it as an aperitif overlooking the sea, with the same aromas; salt and cut grass. I can also imagine it accompanying a plate of lobster or a sole with no trimmings.
