Tekuno is a San Francisco-based company that works directly with farms and producers to showcase the quiet, expansive breadth of Japanese teas.
Fresh, Floral, Grassy Green Teas
Japanese green teas are capable of a wide range of aromas and flavors. Those with high florality will taste verdant and "green," evoking early spring and new fields of growth. When brewed to an extreme, floral teas will taste freshly bitter, though not necessarily astringent nor unpleasant.
