The Kodama Sencha is named for the protective tree spirits of Japanese folklore. It is a proprietary blend of summer and spring harvests and its signature hiire finishing is a closely guarded family secret. Expect the deep, expressive umami typical of Fukuoka teas, complemented by vibrant, fresh aroma and a lustrous green infusion. Notes of toasted nori, sesame, and honeydew.
