Description

Matsushita-San's Shoju of Tanegashima Island is an Ichibancha made on the island of Tanegashima, on the southern edge of Japan, and is produced by Mister Matsushita. This tea is made from a very rare cultivar known as Shoju, which is the most early-blooming in the country.

The first spring sencha of the year is a delight thanks to its vegetal, buttery and marines notes which melt into a round and oily texture.

Suggestion of preparation

With the tasting set: 2' minutes in water heated to 70°C - 160°F.

Grands Crus: savour the exceptional

Rare and ephemeral, teas identified as Grands Crus by Palais des Thés are the result of alchemy between a tea plant variety, its terroir and the talent of an artisan grower. Meticulously plucked, processed and sourced in the most respected tea gardens, our Grands Crus unveil unique flavours that reflect the refinement of their origins.
