A taste of refreshing minerality and bold umami, paired with a mild sweetness and floral aroma, lets this delicately steamed green tea surpass all expectations for sencha.

More information

The leaves of this single cultivar sencha were intentionally shaded for fourteen days before harvest. Once plucked, the leaves were lightly steamed (asamushi) for less than a minute. This momentary contact with heat is enough to prevent the leaves from oxidising and significantly disfiguring. Prior to the drying process, the tea leaves were pressed and tossed to form sencha's quintessential long, needle shape.
