Deep Steamed Sōfū Sencha

Not rated yet

Sōfū sencha is an unusual variety of green tea, a cross between Yabukita and another cultivar known as "Inzatsu" 131.  This deep steamed version (do also check out our light steamed Sōfū sencha) is grown in Kakegawa Shizuoka and is yellow-green in color.  It has quite a bit different profile and it is more robust than our our light steamed product.

Sofu has become popular in recent years due to the purported wide range of potential health benefits. Research has shown that this is due to its anthranilic acid content, which is also found as an aroma component in jasmine tea. It is also being looking at as possibly being beneficial for dementia and Alzheimer's diseases. Sofu also contains a high amount of the component  quercetin (high in many fruits and vegetables such as onions), which is thought to improve brain of cognitive function. 

We have a limited amount of this item.
