We sourced only a limited quantity of this high grade sencha.
Japan produces almost exclusively green tea, the majority of which is sencha. However, the range and breadth of sencha grades and styles is enormous ranging from coarse, everyday green tea to exquisite masterpieces of the Japanese tea-making art. Gold Sencha is a premium grade, First Flush sencha produced with the utmost artisanal skill in early spring.
Steamed Green Tea
Sencha is produced through a uniquely Japanese tea-making process. The fresh leaf is steamed immediately after harvest without any withering. This preserves the tea’s fresh, vivacious, green quality and bright, chlorophyll-rich color.
