I start every morning with a cup of sencha. I’m so glad we brought a couple hundred grams of this back from Japan with us. I’ll be sad when we finish it off next month.
Great sencha from a small Kyoto merchant. It has those classic sencha vegital aromas and flavors. There are a few cut stem pieces in with the leaves, so it is probably mechanically harvested. Yamadashi Ya has a roaster and a grinder right there in his shop so he can make houjicha and matcha to order.
