This tea is from Shizuoka on the Fujiyama mountain slopes, where half of the Japanese tea is produced. This Sencha is harvested mechanically in autumn. Stalks and broken pieces are removed by hand. Sencha means “steamed tea”. This tea is carefully processed and slightly steamed before rolling and drying. The leaf thus obtains a very fine and fragile structure. The infusion has a shimmering, light olive-green colour. The taste is distinct with a dominant note in the aftertaste and ideal for those who like strong green teas. Besides the taste characteristics, this tea is also most cost effective.
