This Japanese Grand Cru comes from Kobayashi, which is located in the south of Japan, in Miyazaki Prefecture. This tea is made using the first flush of the year, and is produced from a rare cultivar called Sakimidori.
A spring tea with a velvety texture with vanilla and vegetal notes that bring to mind Japanese pastries. A delicious Grand Cru!
