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 Tokunoshima, 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!
