Grown in Ei town, Kagoshima Prefecture. A light steamed green tea and semi-shaded before harvest (kabusecha), this sencha has an nice yellowish green clear color to it and carries a rather prominant, nice grassy aroma and taste. Very nicely balanced color, astringency, aroma and taste, this has been priced competitively and is a very good value considering it's high quality. Very delicious, we are confident you will enjoy this product. As with all of our loose leaf green teas, packaged in nitrogen flushed packaging.

Price shown includes 100 grams of tea per package.

    I had to adjust the temp to 165F and reduce steep time to 60 seconds. Once I made these adjustments this is one of my favorite green teas! I love the small tingle on the tongue after drinking a few cups. Very flavorful.

    This is a really interesting, flavorful, and elegant brew. Lightly grassy, and fruity from the Oku Midori breed. I'm quite fond of this selection. Will be a blissful bag of tea to indulge in.

    What is the suggested brewing time and temperature for western style brewing? ( French press)

    I can't tell you how to brew this in a French press, that is a very untraditional way to brew. I can say, however, that if you brew this in a traditional Japanese teapot it would be about 90 seconds for the first infusion.
