We call this tea Japanese Sencha because not all Sencha on the market is from Japan. Our Sencha is a very fine one from the central Shizuoka province, and can be found in many homes in Tokyo. It is a pleasant and approachable green tea a fine choice for everyday. Each tea sachet brews a 12 oz cup.
Ingredients: Green Tea. All Natural.
Michael's Tea Ratings
Details:The Kaburagi family has sold to Americans for over 110 years. They are well known in Tokyo and throughout Japan as a pre-eminent supplier of tea. They supply this pleasant Sencha from central Shizuoka. To keep the price somewhat reasonable, we choose teas from the middle of the season. Value the pleasant flavor and the antioxidants.
Dry Leaves:The leaves from this tea are a medium lime green color. Since this is a traditional sencha (futsumushi) the leaves are more identifiable than in the deep steamed (fukamushi).
Liquor:The liquor is a medium green, not as intense as the Ichiban. The green is a truer green than the Bancha, which tends more towards yellow.
Aroma:Our Japanese Sencha has pleasant spinachy notes, with slight roast flavors that are similar to toasted bread.
Body:As a mid-season Sencha, this green tea has good levels of amino acids and more body than most green teas.
Flavors:This is a very pleasant green tea. The mild vegetal flavors with light accents of citrus and toast make this a tea that can handle all your moods - every day.
Brewing Time:3 minutes
