Sencha is a popular style of green tea created in Japan, incorporating unique techniques of steaming and rolling the leaf, and it can be made from a variety of cultivars. This small lot hails from a high-elevation farm in the Shizuoka region, and the elegant, pine-green, needle-shaped leaves were covered (kabuse) before harvest, which alters their chemical composition: The lack of sunlight allows the plants’ level of amino acids to rise, which translates to rich fragrances and umami flavors in the cup.

When infused, a deep aroma of grain and grass unfolds with a buttery texture and taste of steamed greens and minerality. The lingering finish brightens over time; brew with water well below boiling (~160° F) to maintain the tea’s inherent sweetness.
