Sencha Midori Organic

$ 8.90

Sencha Midori is grown at Igeta's own tea garden, along the slopes of Mt Kuroyama, where they were granted organic certification in 2001.  Organic sencha can sometimes pale in comparison to conventional sencha but Igeta's Midori, despite being a blend of first and second harvest, is a brilliant expression of flavour, richness and mouthfeel.  Sweet, buttery corn and pea up-front balance nicely with a refreshing mild astringency and lasting coolness on the tongue.  Great value.

The highest quality is a core value of Igeta Seicha and the reason they oversee every aspect of tea production, from the cultivating healthy soil to final packaging of the finished tea.  Multiple top Nihoncha Awards placings are evidence of this commitment to excellence.
