Japanese green tea Ohsumi Yuzu 6 bags
This tea is produced and cured by a Japanese company called TEAET which wants to promote a particular selection of leaves from its country in practical tea bags. Among these special teas there is this not-oxidized product. The green leaves of this tea are treated in the same way of a sencha before being blended with little pieces of yuzu peel. This citrus originally from Asia has quite a unique freshness which could be easily paired with the first tea harvests of spring. TEAET specifically studied a blend of camelia’s cultivar made of Yutakamidori and seamidori varietals in order to bring the West a different not oxidized tea compared to the most know ones from China and India.
The taste and the body of this infuse made by the blend between yuzu and tea results quite bold besides these two elements are capable of giving a great freshness to the palate. The reason behind the smooth and bold texture of this liquor are the polyphenols in the green tea leaves which also give, in the aftertaste, a taste of fresh cutted grass. however, Before talking about the aftertaste, the main character in the mouth is the yuzu with its intense freshness followed by slight citrus sourness. Here, in conclusion, you can find a well balanced mix of flavors like in the oolong with ginger crumbs thanks to the great care in the selection of the ratio between tea leaves and yuzu tea begs per tea begs.
Place of origin
This tea is produced in the classic Japanese style. The leaves after the picking phase pass through a brief withering phase and then they are steamed at a very high temperature for 15/20 seconds. This practice provides the "killing of the green" which stands for the deactivation of the enzymes responsible of the oxidation process. The leaves are now rolled for released all their flavors and then they are dried with hot air to be ready to infuse. At the end of the processing the leaves are mixed with small pieces of yuzu peel following a precise ratio.
