Kumpu - 100g
With umami and sweet notes at the forefront, Kumpu is an elegant full-bodied sencha. Sweet, soft, and delicate with a long finish.
With its characteristic elegant fragrance and delicate aftertaste, Kumpu is a high-class sencha in our rich category. Choose this tea if you enjoy umami, sweetness, and a sustained aftertaste, with a slightly gentler character. We also recommend this tea as cold brew, to taste the full potential of its deep umami and sweetness.

A mild and rich flavor with no bitterness. The few notes astringency come through in the back of the mouth in a very mild way, complimenting the deeper flavors. It doesn't have much of the grassy notes that many senchas do. It strikes me as a nice balance between Sencha and Gyokura (minus the sweetness). Overall excellent tea, especially for those more introspective and thoughtful moods.
I would describe it as a mid-class sencha - tasty and easy to drink everyday, energizing and very refreshing.
There are higher quality sencha's one can buy, but then one has to pay significantly more.
I love Kumpu!
Good flavor, but not fantastic.
This was my first time brewing Kumpu sencha and I enjoyed it very much! It has a beautiful umami taste with a slight astringency that reminds me of biting into a sweet and juicy fruit. I do not pick up any bitterness. The mouthfeel is very buttery. This is truly a high grade sencha!
