First rate Asamiya Green Sencha, harvested in May to produce a beautiful umami green, like drinking the leaves freshly plucked from the fields. From the award winning family owned organic tea farm in Shiga, Japan @katagikoukaen where teas originated. Packed with catechins and antioxidants, brew Sencha at 70-80'C (never ever boiling water) and steep not more than 1 minute. Serve, enjoy, then top up for a second round, and third. Ideally, brew in smaller eastern teawares or kyusu (Japanese teapots). Beautiful smooth, sophisticated Sencha to enjoy, on it's own with your own tea ritual or as an accompaniment with a delicious meal.
