In Japan, the most prestigious teas are the Ichibancha, which means "first harvest". This tea is a Shincha Ichibancha, from the famous Sencha-producing region of Shizuoka. This tea is produced from the Yabukita cultivar. It is made by a skilled producer, Mr. Masuda, and it is come from Makinohara.
Its round texture, as well as its complex aromatic profile consisting of subtle vegetal, fruity and marine notes, make this a delicate sencha Ichibancha.
