This sencha green tea was made with a cultivar known as "sora," which originates from Taiwan and is usually reserved for oolong teas. Its flavor profile is one of the most unique we have tasted for senchas: floral as that one would find with Taiwanese oolongs, with little bitterness and no astringency.

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 bartlett pear & egg custard.
