Sencha

GREEN TEA

3 reviews

Slender needle-like leaves produce a deeply vegetal taste and aroma, ripe with notes of toasted rice and nori. Harvested in the spring to early summer in the up-and-coming Kagoshima region, the leaves are steamed to perfection to stop oxidation of the leaf, as well as to lock in their deep jade color and flavor.

Tasting Notes:

Magnolia, umami, steamed greens

This is my every day tea

I drink this everyday twice a day because I love it. It has a very vegetal grassy flavor which is perfect for daily drinking. Nice little boost of energy from it as well.

Sencha

Japanese Green Tea

Slender needle-like leaves produce a deeply vegetal taste and aroma, ripe with notes of toasted rice and nori. The leaves are steamed to perfection to stop oxidation of the leaf, as well as to lock in their deep jade color and rich flavor.

Shizuoka Prefecture

Shizuoka Prefecture is located in the Chubu region, on the island of Honshu in Japan. While unable to claim full ownership of Mt. Fuji (its a joint custody thing with Yamanashi Prefecture), Shizuoka can tout being the biggest tea producing region in Japan, which says something. Harvest time for Sencha happens from April through June.
