Shincha Houryoku ($19.75)

JAPANESE GREEN TEA: Shincha Houryoku
Description:
Shincha Houryoku is an Eighty-Eighth (88th) Night Shincha produced with a longer steaming just like our Fukamushi-Sencha. The extra steaming causes the tea to brew a thick emerald liquid full of herbaceous flavor. Eighty-Eighth Night Shincha refers to Shincha picked on the 88th day after the first day of spring in the traditional Japanese calendar. It is around May 2nd. The Eighty-Eighth Nigh - "Hachijuhachiya" in Japanese - is a special day in Japanese agriculture since it is considered about the time all the plants and vegetation begin to sprout.
  • Origin: Makinohara, Shizuoka
  • Harvest: First Flush 2015
  • Species: Yabukita
Den's 2015 Shincha Houryoku Tasting Comments:
I had been reported from our taster in Japan that this year Fukamushi Sencha is well produced, and I confirmed it even before tasting a cup. When I brew Houryoku and poured it into a cup, I saw the liquid was sticky and it looked savory to me. Then I re-confirmed it because the sip clung thickly to my mouth. It was so creamy and tasty like a green vegetable soup. The cup is very mild with no bitterness, and the taste stayed in my mouth for a long time. While I was sipping, my mouth and nose were filled with deep green flavors. The second cup offered me the same thick tastes. Enjoy the deep flavor of 2015 Houryoku.
