« A green tea for eternity »
To the west of Fuji Yama, the Abe and Warashina rivers crisscross the land alternating between galloping rapids and peaceful waves.
They irrigate terroirs long celebrated for their unique grands crus, the famous « Meicha », elected by the Tokugawa Shogunate during the Edo period (16th – 18th centuries). Cultivated since the Kamakura era (12th century), today this fabulous green tea is produced exclusively for Mariage Frères while respecting the principles of organic agriculture and its natural environment. The small garden from where this tea comes benefits from a soil rich in minerals and a pure, invigorating mountain air. Long reserved for aristocrats and lords, this precious tea, « Emperor of the Sencha », has transcended time like an elixir of eternal youth.
Dried leaves : The young, glossy deep-green leaves exhale a gourmet poem of marshmallow with citrusy accents of yuzu married to the delicate aromas of dashing violet.
Infused leaves : Emerald with a satin sheen, the leaves unleash a heart note of melon bursting with summer-sun that fades into a note of vanilla chestnut, crowned by white magnolia flowers.
Liquor : Brilliant, tender green. A milky, intoxicating vapour captured in the heart of the leaves imparts a pleasantly lush sensation recalling water delicately perfumed with flowers underscored by a delightful note of fresh pistachio. The long finale resonates with a fruity melody of Fuji apple blended with a soft impression of white musk.
