A Sencha of the highest quality, Spring Sun is comprised of lovely dark green needles that create a sun-lit golden liquor. Medium-bodied with a long presence, it offers bright-tasting grassy notes with a delightful astringency. A delicious floral aftertaste reminiscent of crushed laurel persists. This tea is grown in full sunlight and harvested in spring. A truly beautiful tea, ideal for early mornings or afternoon calm.
