FOG ISLAND SENCHA GREEN TEA

Fog Island Sencha Green Tea
As low as £13.00
This very high-quality tea is grown in the volcanic soil on the island Kyushu in an area called Kirishima which means island of fog. It has a lustrous green leaf, rich fragrance and sweet, almost umami flavour. It is one of, if not the most distinctive of all Japanese Sencha teas and whilst not cheap I believe it offers the same quality as teas four times its price. Super high in antioxidants.

This very high-quality tea is grown in the volcanic soil on the island Kyushu belonging to the prefecture Kagoshima in the south of Japan. The area is called Kirishima which means island of fog. The lustrous green of the leaf, rich fragrance and sweet, almost spicy, umami flavour are characteristics of this high-quality Sencha, which is a special blend of teas grown on Kureshina. It has much in common with the illustrious Gyokuro tea from Japan, in that it is also shaded with black cloth for a part of its cultivation to increase the chlorophyll content. It is one of, if not the most distinctive of all Japanese Sencha teas and whilst not cheap I believe it offers the same quality as teas four times its price. We also supply this to a major distillery, to make a special gin with it!
