Asanoka sencha is a fairly new cultivar developed in Japan. This delicious tea is elegant and smooth with a mouthfeel that is very round and thick. Vegetal and marine notes linger nicely, as is characteristic of the best Japanese teas with lots of umami. Despite its wonderful flavor, it is relatively inexpensive as it has not yet gained full popularity in Japan.
