"Ujibashi San no Ma" (Kirameki) Uji Asamushi Sencha
It’s our pleasure to be able to offer the outstanding handpicked Uji sencha “Ujibashi San no Ma”, from Japan’s oldest teashop, Tsuen Tea. This item, (released as “Kirameki” when offered as shincha in the spring), is picked by hand using only the top select 100% Yabukita leaves from the first harvest. It is harvested in a way no machine can ever hope to match. 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.
