Sencha Ashikubo Organic

Try this tea first
Product code: CSTV-35

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.
