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.
From the rare Asanoka cultivar, this Sencha was produced by M. Kyouko Sata, in Kagoshima Prefecture on the warm island of Kyushu in Southern Japan.
This Sencha green tea is a must in our selection, and also one of our best sellers. Produced by the Morishita brothers at Isagawa tea farming cooperative in Shizuoka, it sets high the Japanese standards for highly drinkable, daily type green teas.
