Uji Asamushi Sencha "Aoi"
It’s our pleasure to be able to offer the outstanding Uji sencha “Aoi”, (“Green”) from Japan’s oldest teashop, Tsuen Tea. This item consists of yabukita leaves from the first harvest and is Tsuen’s second highest ranked sencha, the first being their San no Ma. This lightly steamed sencha (asamushi) yields a very wonderful nice grassy aroma. Here is your chance to try some of the best of what Japan has to offer in Japanese green tea, directly from the banks of the Uji river.
Ease of Brewing Advanced – A little prior green tea experience recommended.
