Sencha is a style of green tea unique to Japan, which can be made from a variety of cultivars and with a few different techniques. This small lot hails from a high-elevation farm in Shizuoka, and the elegant, pine-green, needle-shaped leaves are both kabuse (covered before havest) and tezumi (hand picked)—two unusual processing steps—before being lightly steamed to halt oxidization.

When infused, a deep aroma of apple and cilantro unfolds to a rich, grassy flavor with notes of bittersweet chocolate and artichoke. The lingering finish sweetens over time; brew with water well below boiling to maintain the tea’s inherent balance.

Country: Japan
