Yume - Icho (bihakko fukamushi)

from 9.10

Name: Yume

Variety: Icho (bi hakko fukamushi)

Origin: Iruma, Saitama

Tea maker: Yoshiaki Hiruma

Harvest: spring 2015

Plant variety: Yumewakaba

Yumewakaba naturally has rich fragrant overtones of orchid as well as balanced hints of tannin and umami as well.  The Fukamushi finishing process used for making to this fragrant tea  yields a bright green brew. Rich orchid on the nose, gradually openning up to give a fresh green taste with a touch of bitterness and hint of mint on the palate. A clean finish with slight acidity.  Very sophiscated super icho by tea artist Hiruma-san.
