Sencha Ashikubo Organic
This green tea comes from the magnificent Ashikubo valley in Japan and has undergone a long drying process.
What results is a clear, mild liquor that is slightly fruitier and toastier than other generally more herbaceous Sencha. Secondary aromas of corn, mango, hazelnuts and parsley make it an ideal tea for anyone starting to discover Japanese teas.

In addition to offering a comfortable grip thanks to its side handle, the fine-mesh filter easily holds in the finest leaves.
From an organic culture on Kyushu Island, this green tea is produced by pan-fried method (kamairi), instead of the conventional Japanese method of steaming. This style of transformation gives a particular balance between bitterness and sweetness, exempt from the typical astringency found in Sencha style teas.
This Sencha green tea is a must in our selection, and also one of our best sellers.
