Made in the traditional style of Shizuoka (Japan), this Sencha is one of our best sellers, year after year.
Grown and processed in the region of Uji in Japan, this green "shade-tea" is of great finesse. Shade structures which block up to 70% of the light are placed over the tea plants two weeks before harvest in order to soften the leaves and increase the chlorophyll concentration.
Its infusion, vegetal in character, is delicately sweet and velvety. Notes of spinach, peas and cashew blend leaving a persistent pleasantly marine aftertaste.
- Cultivar: Yabukita
