"A tasty grand cru full of richness"

The aspect of dry leaves is typical of a high quality sencha. The aromas of the infused leaves are very deep and powerful, reminiscent of artichoke and green vegetables. The liquor, of an attractive ochre, has a creamy texture, guaranteeing a beautiful length in the mouth. The dominant flavor is slightly bitter. The taste notes are well structured and very rich. There are cooked vegetables, hay, nuts and even a lemony note at the end of the tasting. The following infusions bring more sweetness, and more gourmet, buttery and vegetal notes. A grand cru based on a rare cultivar and a tasting full of surprises, this tea has it all!

Preparation tips: Infuse this tea in a small teapot, ideally between 20 and 30cl. Place 5g leaves in the teapot, cover with slightly mineralized water heated to 70 degrees, Wait 1 minute 30 minutes seconds, and serve. The color of the liqueur is a good indicator of the level of infusion, for a perfectly infused tea, the color should be pale yellow, very translucent, slightly golden. If your liquor is strongly golden, deep yellow, your tea will be very bitter.
