Product Overview

Type: Green 
Packaging: Bag 
Origin: Shizuoka Prefecture, Japan 
Description: 

A steamed green tea from Shizuoka Prefecture, sencha is one of Japan’s most popular and beloved teas. Shizuoka Green Tea - The majority of Japanese green tea comes from Shizuoka prefecture. With a warmer than average climate for mainland Japan, it provides the perfect growing conditions for Japanese green tea. Early spring-picked leaves are steamed and roasted with fire to retain the leaf’s natural sweetness while giving a full mouthfeel with a robust aroma and taste.

Roasted Sencha is a characterful sencha from Shizuoka that undergoes extra roasting during finishing. this Roasted Sencha undergoes additional baking during the finishing process to impart a lovely toasted character and to further balance the flavors. The baking is stronger than on most sencha green teas.

Thin and polished dark green leaves produce a pale green liquor with a nutty aroma. The full flavor is verdant with toasted, savory and tangy umami notes. Refreshing, sweet, and satisfying, this is a perfect tea to start your journey of discovery in the world of Japanese teas or to come back to a nostalgic favorite.

Brewing Guide: A low brewing temperature, as well as a short infusion time, can make it mellow. 70C (158F) is at the low end of the temperature scale for sencha, but it unlocks a mellow flavor profile in this tea.
