Sōfū sencha is an unusual variety of green tea, a cross between Yabukita and another cultivar known as "Inzatsu" 131.  Our version is grown in Toku-no-shima, a small island located between Kagoshima and Okinawa.  Lightly steamed and a somewhat golden yellow color, it interstingly has a mixed green tea and floral, jasmine like taste and aroma.

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. If you are a green tea fan who also enjoys oolong or jasmine tea, we think you'll really appreciate this tasty green tea. Here is your chance to try a very high quality Japanese green tea with unique floral, jasmine-like floral characteristics. An extremely delicious green tea, this would probably taste great iced as well!

    Really lovely (shincha) sencha. Not only is it quite amazing if it comes to taste and aroma but also it's influence on mind is astonishing. Calms you down and make you feel peaceful. Of course price for such tea is superb as well :D

    Very interesting new tea variety. It has a unique character. The floral notes are distinct and the aroma is well balanced. If you like jasmine tea or light oolong teas, this is perfect for you. The color is more golden yellow than green and tea is clear. Leaves are large and stay in the pot well. This tea is easy to brew and delicious. I will definitely order this again. I usually drink fukamushi and I didn't expect to like this this much, but it is a new favorite.
