Produced by a family run farm from a misty village in Yame, this pesticide-free green tea is grown at relatively low elevation, using 70-year-old traditions. Our premium Sencha is lightly steamed during production and not oxidized. It is then air dried and rolled to produce long slender bright green leaves. Japan rarely exports its premium Sencha, so this is a rare treat to savour.
When infused with low temperature water it produces a balanced flavour of savory umami, vegetal notes and a sweet finish.
