The "taste" that we usually perceive is composed of taste and smell, and it is said that smell accounting for more than 80%. Green tea contains more than 200 kinds of aromatic components. These components are intricately combined to create the aroma of tea.
This tea, named "Fragrant Green Tea," is made by wilting (oxidative fermentation), which is not part of the normal green tea production process, to bring out the aroma from the tea leaves. This process is also used in the production of oolong and black tea, and is essential in creating the rich aroma that can be compared to flowers and fruits.
This "Sayamakaori" tea has a characteristic aroma like soybean flour or roasted sesame, which is created by intertwining the sweet aroma created by wilting and the roasted aroma added by heating. The rich aroma that spreads the moment you open the lid of the kyusu makes us feel luxurious.
It can be brewed at high temperature or cold. We hope you will enjoy the aroma of this tea in a variety of ways.
