Grown in Kirishima, Kagoshima Prefecture. A medium steamed green tea that leans a little bit towards light-steaming, it was semi-shaded before harvest (kabusecha), this sencha has an nice yellowish green semi-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.

    This sencha seems to have almost every flavor of all I've tried so far, and they each come forth with different leaf amounts, brewing times, and temperatures. A great tea to hone your craft with. I ended up liking it with a lot of leaf. The first cup is really spectacular with fruitiness, the following are floral, and, if I brew beyond 3 infusions, a prominent bitterness and astringency comes forth more suitable for having it iced. If you like either strong or light flavors and aromas, it seems this sencha can do both.

    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.
