Spring Sencha | Wasencha Midori

TASTING NOTES: green grass, seaweed, bergamot
Everyday easy, but delightful sencha by Kaneroku Matsumoto Tea Garden. Regular steamed tea leaves with a balanced sencha green tea flavor. The first whiff of Wasencha Midori Sencha will transport you to a dewy springtime meadow. Expect a dominant aroma of fresh green grass with very subtle hints of seaweed (pleasant umami) characteristic of high-quality Sencha.


3rd generation tea farmer Hiroki Matsumoto manages some 30 fields in the Kiriyama region of the Makinohara plain in Shimada, Shizuoka. He utilizes the UNESCO designated World Heritage agricultural tradition, Chagusaba, to cultivate his tea leaves. This tradition requires farmers to cultivate sasa grasses surrounding the tea fields, and use the grasses as fertilizer in the fields.

Regular steamed tea leaves create a balanced sencha green tea.
