Young spring and early summer leaves come together to make Japan's most traditional loose leaf tea; sencha. Our Sencha is steamed in the Fukamushi, or "deep-steamed" style characteristic of southern Shizuoka, and then finished with a high roasting; the specialty of the Sugimoto family. The high heat finishing roast brings out a rich aroma and lingering umami finish that is consistent even after multiple steepings. Packaged in a resealable foil pouch, your tea will be kept fresh for months of daily enjoyment. There are 20 compostable pyramid tea bags per pouch. Each tea bag is good for a 12 oz cup of tea.
