Cup of Japan

005 SAMURAI 侍, Powerful & Mellow Tea

¥2,500

SAMURAI means warrior. A well-balanced and mellow green tea with little astringency and a faint sweetness. Grown in Makinohara, famous for its Samurai origins as warriors laid the foundations for the region’s high-quality tea today.

This sencha is produced using a rare cultivar called Saemidori cultivar which delivers a gentle taste perfect after eating. Our farmer (MaruMaru-san) follows many of the same traditions as the Samurai founders with the same passion and resilience.

ma premiere impression à propos du Samurai

Tant par sa couleur, que son parfum ainsi que son goût, j' ai découvert un thé qui me crée un lien avec la nature.
Il s’agit en ce qui me concerne non pas d’une consommation de thé mais d’une dégustation qui se rapproche du rituel.

Balanced and tasty

Another very enjoyable mellow tea! Love the nod it gives to the region’s tea history.
