Nishi Seicha, Kirishima

Organic Umame (mecha)

53,00 zł

     

A special green tea from the mountain fields of Kirishima, made primarily with buds that are sorted away as "demono" from the production of Sencha. The scent of leaves after the first extraction is uplifting and floral. The taste is gentle and fruity, high in umami. The soft leaf buds break up during steaming, resulting in a powdery tea. As the leaf material is fine, it requires brewing skill to bring out its full potential.

Brewing suggestion: 4g 70ml for 40 seconds at 70 degrees. This is a green tea that can easily give 3 infusions with slightly warmer water for later extraction. It is interesting to experiment with different brewing parameters. Brew it similarly to a Gyokuro and you extract something quite special, a very relaxing and soothing cup, with ample umami.
