From Tenryu, a rustic mountainous tea producing area in the Shizuoka Prefecture of Japan, this Mountain Sencha steeps light, with good clarity in the cup (because of its longer leaves). The tea is very clean tasting, with a satisfying feeling in the throat upon swallowing. The astringency is mild and the liquor has a balanced savory sweetness to it.
This tea was grown under organic conditions but is not certified organic.
2020 Spring Harvest. Hand-picked.
