Organic Uji Gokujo Sencha
Organic Uji Gokujo Sencha is an 88th day (Hachiju-Hachiya) cultivated organic sencha. Hachiju-Hachiya is traditionally the best day for harvesting green tea in Japan. Unlike Tokusen sencha which is 100% sun-grown, Gokujo sencha goes through a short period of coverage before harvesting. The coverage period is around 3-5 days, shorter than that of kabusecha. However, similar to that of kabusecha, the theanine in the tea leaves is maintained resulting in a less astringent, but lighter, sweeter cup of organic sencha. Brewed correctly, Gokujo sencha is very flavorful. It’s unique rich sweetness and tart aftertaste makes for a simply delicious cup of organic sencha! Carries both the JAS and USDA organic seals!
