This delicate waves brings a creamy taste. Kuradashi Sencha is aromatic and has a mellow Umami acquired in the naturally cooled kura at Ikawa.
The dry leaves are cut very thin and fine, and they are a very dark green. After infusing, the leaves expand to about triple their pre-infusion size, and are a more vivid, bright green color. The aroma is lightly vegetative.
The flavor is truly unique from any Sencha I’ve tried. It has a very pleasant, savory quality to it. Like its scent, it is a soft vegetative taste. It is sweet with a lovely creamy flavor and texture. The mouthfeel does not linger, however, as there is a very slight astringency that cleanses the palate.
The flavor is so mild and soothing. At the end of this long day, I can feel it calm me. It seems to actually relax the tension in my shoulders! This is one amazing Sencha, indeed!
I could not find this tea on Den’s website, so if you’re interested, I strongly recommend contacting them to find out if you can obtain some of this incredible tea! It is definitely worth the effort!
