This Japanese Sencha comes to us from a recently discovered and very gifted producer in Fukuoka, on the island of Kyushu. This limited edition is a perfect alternative to your regular green tea.
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.
Here is a green tea from Shizuoka in Japan, from a cultivar we are very fond of, the Sakimidori.
This is a unique lot of Japanese green tea was carefully plucked and processed on the island of Kyushu, in the Yame prefecture of Fukuoka. The expertise of this new producer has made this year's Sencha a favourite of the team.
