Sencha Yabukita

$40.75
| /

Comprised entirely of the yabukita cultivar, which is most commonly used for sencha, these mossy green, elegant needle-shaped leaves were grown in Uji, harvested in the spring, and then lightly steamed to halt oxidation.

A classic style of Japanese green tea, this sencha has bold notes of fresh grass and seaweed, with a pleasant, bright aroma and a long, lingering finish. Brew with water below boiling to maintain the tea’s inherent sweetness, or try steeping in room-temperature water for a few minutes.

Review of Sencha

I thought it was a pleasant tea.Nice taste and a lighter green infusion than the fukamushi Sencha.

Really enjoyed the tea. Will buy more soon.

Thanks, Brett. It's one of our favorite greens, too—we find it full-flavored but well balanced.
