TGL invites you to a guided tasting of teas from the most rural and isolated areas in Japan.
This Week's Course
Ayame Kabuse - Fukuoka, Japan
Sharing characteristics of both gyokuro and sencha, expect a bright piney aroma with a dose of round, buttery, umami.
Uji no Sato Sencha - Uji, Japan
Uji no Sato is a classic example of the Uji terroir: golden liquor, light silky body, and the unmistakable “Uji Aroma”.
Chilled Sobacha - Nagano, Japan
Sugars in the buckwheat kernels caramelize as they are fired leading to a naturally sweet cup with a golden liquor and lasting, toasted finish. Naturally free of caffeine.
Genmaimatcha - Uji, Japan
This genmai matcha is a blend of first flush sencha, high grade matcha powder, and toasted puffed-brown rice. A deep green cup with a silky mouthfeel and a lovely baked grain finish.
Chilled Jou Yanagi Houjicha - Uji, Japan
Late harvest Uji bancha is drum roasted until reaching a deep brown, almost black hue. Incredibly fragrant and easy drinking, this is the perfect winter cup.
