Shizuoka Sencha Tsuyu Hikari - Defininetly one of the best sencha green teas we have ever tried.  This light steamed sencha green tea is produced by a well-known tea master located in Tenryu, Shizuoka and of course is harvested from the first round of young leaves. This is a rather rare batch and probably won't last very long.  Perfectly shaped beautiful green needles and great balance, it has a rich, silky mouthfeel.  As with most light steamed green teas, some of the taste is subtle but this one has a very nice, pronounced umami and lingering aftertaste.  Frankly speaking, this tea is a masterpiece assamushi green tea.

We have obtained a limited supply of this fantastic green tea.  It was expensive to purchase, but it was so good we simply could not pass it up.   We have decided to make it available in 50 gram packages so that more of our customers will have the opportunity to try a sencha of this calibre.

We have no idea how long this tea will last but probably not long. 

Price shown includes 50 grams of tea per package

Note: This tea is eligible for purchase with and receiving bonus points but because of it's rarity and our limited supply, it is not eligible for 10% shincha discounts.

    This is becoming my new favourite tea, even over the already excellent "Ujibashi San no Ma". It has a smooth texture and cloudy appearance, and I like to brew it around 65 C for best results.
