Shipping calculated at checkout.

This sencha is crafted from the "kōshun" cultivar, a cultivar known for its floral aroma and herbal tea-like flavors. While last year's crop (under the name "nemuri hime") was a bit fickle to brew, this year's is softly pleasant with little bitterness and a floral finish.

Senchas are the most commonly drunk loose leaf teas in Japan, making up 70% of the country's tea production. It is usually highly vegetal and seaweed-like in flavor. The most revered senchas strike a perfect balance of vegetal flavor, sugary aroma, bitterness, and astringency.

Notes of Asian pear & longan.
