Notes:

This year the Takakis have produced an exceptional Sencha that we have purchased with the intention of learning how to finish fire from them. The firing process curbs the tannins and develops the sugars, and is a standard part of green tea production in Japan. It does not necessarily brown the leaf as it is a whisper of heat. This sencha has lovely flavours of cooked butter and marigold intertwining with a satisfying kale like greenness.
