About this tea
Sencha Superior is made from the predominant Yabukita cultivar of Shizuoka, Japan and offers the classic, bittersweet and balanced umami flavor that represents the original Japanese Sencha taste profile. Sencha Superior is mostly from high grown gardens in Shizuoka and undergoes a light steaming process called asamushi that is employed by tea farmers to preserve the tea's inherent varietal and origin characteristics. The clear, golden-green and brisk infusion of Sencha Superior is fresh and lively with a savory-sweet and crisp finish.
