Sencha Gold (Full Grown Leaf, Very High in Catechin, from Uji)
Many companies and shops carry Sencha but the Sencha carried are from year round harvests that decline in flavor with each harvest. This mid grade first pick derives from mature leaves that will deliver a richer flavor and mild astringency. Because Sencha is grown in full sun and its leaves grown to full maturity, Sencha Gold is actually highest in catechin content (catechin is produced by sun exposure) than any other Sencha from the Zenjicha line. So, if you are drinking with a focus on health than this is the Sencha to drink. Perfectly priced for your everyday needs and still good enough to impress guests.
