This green tea is made from the same farm as two of our other favorite senchas -- Sae Midori Sencha and Asatsuyu Sencha.

The tea leaves are picked in the second week of April in Kagoshima, Japan. They're super soft and tender. And get this: they're shaded for five days before harvest, just like our other Kagoshima green tea.

Now, let's talk aroma. Imagine the scent of a fresh, juicy steamed cabbage. Mmm! On the first infusion, you'll catch a hint of sweet almond, followed by a delightful earthy veggie flavor, kinda like lettuce. But here's the real kicker—the aftertaste is absolutely amazing. It sticks around for quite a while and leaves you with a sweet and refreshing cucumber sensation. It's like a party in your mouth! 

If you drink Japanese green tea every day, we highly recommend using Japanese teapot (kyusu) to make your green tea. It will brew your green tea better. It's much easier and, most importantly, much better tasting!

Bold and grassy

I am still learning to love sencha. This is definitely a very sencha sencha. It’s really bold and intense with a lot of cut grass flavor and astringency, but not too much bitterness. It’s really easy to overbrew, so watch your temperature and timing, but if treated right it will get your sencha on

Herbs & blanched spinach

First infusion was creamy, slight umami, blanched spinach. Second infusion, bright almost citrusy? Third infusion was herbaceous, perhaps you are right, it is leaving you with basil aftertaste.
