A stylish and floral Sencha. *
Origin - Japan
Monk Esai introduced Zen Buddhism and the modern style of tea to Japan in the 12th century. Zen Buddhism and tea became inseparable and thus Chado (The Way of Tea) was developed. Tea is still the most commonly drunk beverage in Japan and a big part of its culture.
This sencha comes from the rare cultivar Koshun and is produced in the asamushi style (shorter steaming) in the Shizuoka province, the spiritual home of Sencha, at the foot of Mt. Fuji.
Profile - This sencha green tea has been lightly steamed and its glossy long dark green leaves reveal a bright and floral liquor. Its creamy texture and vegetal taste blends with pleasant citrus notes.
*This tea originates from organic cultivation.
