This sencha presents a fusion of Yabukita’s characteristic vigor with the nuanced depth introduced by the level six roasting. On the palate, it unfolds layers of roasted chestnuts and toasted seaweed, underpinned by a subtle, vegetal sweetness reminiscent of late spring’s tender shoots. The body is full yet delicately balanced, offering a smooth mouthfeel that elegantly transitions into a lingering, slightly astringent finish, evoking the crispness of a mid-June morning.
