Similar to last year, after speaking with Uejima-san to ask his favourite cultivar this year and he chose this Tsuyuhikari. 

" "Tsuyuhikari" The colour of the brewed tea is a beautiful clear green. Refreshing and rich aroma containing sweetness, rich flavour and sweetness spread in the mouth. Above all, the moment you put it in your mouth, the "green fragrance ingredient" that only fresh tea has is released from your mouth and nose. The first brew has a very mild astringency, not much astringency, and a stronger sweetness than umami. "
