Description

This Sencha is from Shizuoka Prefecture just south of Mt Fujii which produces some excellent Japanese style green teas. Early in the new season the tea is a bright emerald green and has the best flavour noted by a spring fresh character with pungency and body. In Shizuoka the tea starts growing about March 15th, and between then and the end of April the quality is very good. Sencha is commonly used in Japanese tea ceremonies marking events of personal importance. In this type of ceremony it is the ritual that is of paramount importance as the individual is being acknowledged
