From an organic culture on Kyushu Island, this 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.
Made in the traditional style of Shizuoka (Japan), this Sencha is one of our best sellers, year after year.
Previously tended by the late M. Sugiyama, the family gardens are now under the supervision of his wife and son who proudly carry on the passion for the craft.
Brisk and bold, this tea carries in the mouth a strong vegetal taste (steamed brocoli) with a slight bitterness and a pleasant floral finish. Its balanced and refreshing taste is an excellent daily companion.
