Asanoka Sencha


The Asanoka bush was first developed in 1998 through crossbreeding between Yabukita (The most popular tea bush in Japan) and a Chinese bush "Hiramizu #1" in Kagoshima.  Asanoka is very flavorful and has strong Umami.This Asanoka Sencha is made using leaves which were covered for about two weeks before the first flush harvesting  in Kagoshima. It has a very strong Umami and sweetness.
